I've been a pretty active member of the Brethren for about 6 years and I've never been more proud to be a Brethren than today.
We fed a tremendous amount of people today and almost importantly, gave them confidence that people truly care about them and their well being.
There were stories from our delivery people of folks crying when receiving the food and we saw lots of families with small children. We had the pleasure of feeding a large number of first responders would couldn't have been more gracious, polite and grateful.
I had to take a bit of a circuitous route when I arrived, missing the destination by a few blocks. Just traveling those few short blocks showed us how severely hit this community was. The contents of homes were laid out in front of houses by the street on every block, at every house.
Sandy hit Long Beach like Holmes hit Tex Cobb and they are just starting to get back to a small semblance of normalcy.
I'll be posting some pictures asap.
HUGE 'thank you's to everyone that volunteered today.
