Loretta and Mary’s Pantry @ Sacred Heart
Loretta and Mary’s Pantry @ Sacred Heart Church- 2019
This year was a little different for SERVPRO® of Charles County when it came to Loretta and Mary’s Pantry. When asked what items were needed for distribution the answer was “Soup and Crackers.” WOW, not what we expected to hear from them, but we are “Here to Help.” Travis and I set out to the store on a mission for Soup and Crackers! I think people in the store thought we were crazy with carts full of Soup and crackers. Of course, we had to grab some other items just to be on the safe side but we definitely made sure we had Soup and Crackers. While unloading the items and stocking the shelves of the pantry we realized the need for hot Chocolate, Tea and Coffee. So off to the store we go again.
The point of explaining this to you is that the smallest things we take for granted can be major blessings to those in need. Imagine if you purchased 4 cans of soup and a box of crackers each month and donated it. It doesn’t seem like a whole lot correct. Well imagine if 25 people bought 4 cans of soup and a box of crackers each month and donated. Now does it seem like a lot.
Once again this goes back to what we believe here at SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill… “If everyone did a little, we would have a lot.”
