Food (100/365)


“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”
~ Buddha

TIME: 11:30 AM
PLACE: Northern Illinois Food Bank
SUBJECT: Service

Cam and I volunteered at the food bank this morning. There was a group of about 20 of us from the church and in three hours, we sorted, labeled and re-boxed over 3 tons of food - enough to feed 315 families of 4 for an entire week.

In a proud mom moment, I learned that Cam was recommended for supervisory training at the food bank. His dedication, work ethic and loving heart were recognized by one of the food bank employees that we have been working with for the past 18 months. I don't know if Cam will decide this is something he wants to do, but the recognition was a wonderful moment for the both of us!
