06/23/2017: Liberal Faith at Work

Friday, 9:30am, Bremerton Food Line

KUUF:  LIBERAL FAITH AT WORK
On Friday, June 23, twelve volunteers participated on the United Way Day of Caring KUUF Team by reporting for duty at the Bremerton Foodline from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Thanks to Dr. Gail Davis, we proudly wore our “KUUF:  Liberal Faith At Work” buttons.  Nearly 300 sacks of food were bagged for distribution to children.  Grocery bags were doubled up and filled with mayonnaise, milk, juice, canned meals, tuna, peanut butter, jelly/jam, crackers, cereal, Raman, snacks, granola bars, and canned fruit.  The Foodline staff was quite impressed with how much we accomplished.  Another crew repackaged diapers.  Volunteers included:  Jane Chapin, Lynn Lund, Carolee Effron, Ginny and Rick Soth, Gail and Phil Davis, Bonnie and Gary Sykes, Leah and Kelly Vance, Janice Miller (who reported to the Fairgrounds at 7:30 a.m. to register us and pick up our box lunches), and Ellen Newberg, Coordinator.  Thanks, too, to Amy’s Decadent Chocolates for donating caramel apples for the volunteers’ enjoyment.
