Our final food run of the week took us to Birdsprings. Since we have been routinely using the chapter house rather than Sadie Curley's homeland for the food runs, we have been able to expand the number of Elders that we serve here. We now have 38 in the Program at this location, up from the low 20's before.
Although we weren't transporting food boxes, we still found ourselves short of hauling capacity not long before the food run was to start. This was because of the relatively small number of volunteers, many of whom were from out of state and weren't able to bring things from the warehouse. Beverly Benally was one who stepped up, and with her 3/4 ton pickup she helped greatly to see that there were adequate resources.
Toni also received a gift basket for her efforts.
During the giveaways, Betty Ann Nez donated this beautiful storm pattern rug.
