Whether you’re helping to hand out hot meals at a soup kitchen, Feed the Need Missions, or another non-profit organization, your time and energy are valuable to both the clients and the staff. Volunteering is also a great way to get involved in your community! For the months of January and February, we want to honor our volunteers and share with you how volunteering has impacted them.
Jeremy is a new volunteer who has been serving faithfully at our LBA site. He is also finding his place as a new follower of Christ. Feed the Need Missions has helped him realize the difference between having much, and having little. “People have it way worse than I have it,” he said. “It opens your eyes to a better understanding of what real life struggles look like. The people are willing to give up so much when they have so little. They don’t complain when we get low on food and they are always so appreciative,” he said.
We are so thankful for people like Jeremy who take the time out of their busy life, to serve others. Volunteers provide a valuable service for non-profits like Feed the Need Missions. The lack of resources that is needed for the communities we serve, puts a strain on our small staff team. Jeremy said, “The smile on their face after giving them a burger is pure enjoyment, why wouldn’t anyone want to serve with you guys? God wants us to love others and to share his love and this is a great way to do it.”
Come out to one of our communities and be a part of the great work the Lord is doing!
