Feeding the Need — Salvation Army Food Bank & RMH Wish List

We held our Canned Goods Shower in support of Salvation Army Food Bank and a Wish List Roundup for the Ronald McDonald House during our February general meeting and got an overwhelming response from our membership!

It took 6 people multiple trips to unload the van at the Salvation Army.  (The pictures below were taken before the van was fully loaded and do not do justice to the depth of items packed into that cargo well!  The seats and floor space of the van were filed as well!)

~

— With only a few days notice on some priority wish list needs (cooking oil, coffee creamer and cleaner) for the Ronald McDonald house, our membership more than met the challenge of filling the need!

Our thanks to all the Service League of Greenville members who generously brought items in for both events.  Special thanks go to Sustaining Co-chairs Laurie Charlton & Katie Beckman for organizing the Salvation Army canned goods shower and Ronald McDonald House chair Jamie Kirby for collecting and transporting wish list items!

With Giving Hearts … On Christmas Eve

Pixabay heart gift (pd - CC0)As a volunteer service organization, we take pride in our service hearts.  But when it comes to other needs in our community, we don’t sit back on our laurels.  We like to shine with the generosity of our giving hearts too.  Especially, when it comes to food!  Many members routinely provide food dishes as needed for guests or special events at Ronald McDonald house, Hope Lodge and Hospice House.

Some times the need is at a moments notice…

Just after noon on Christmas eve, an email request went out to our membership from our Hospice House Chair, Martha Bloss:

“Sorry for the short notice, but Hospice House on Wellness Drive has a need for dinner tomorrow.  I know everyone is busy and many of you are out of town.  15-20 family members will be there tomorrow and most restaurants will be closed.  I will take a chicken casserole.  If you can make an extra side dish, salad, bread, desert or tea please take it over before 5:00, 12/24/16.”

Almost immediately the email responses poured in:

“…Pineapple Au Gratin…” – Pat

“…Some sliced ham and a small casserole of sweet potatoes…” – Anne

“…Brownies out of the oven…” – Jeri

“…Broccoli casserole, rolls and congealed salad…” – Gail

“…Some ham and a plate of goodies..” – Blanche

“…A cake…” – Nancy

And within hours, the makings of a fine holiday meal were delivered to the Hospice House!

From the Vidant Home Health and Hospice Newsletter:

SPECIAL SHOUT OUT!!

A big thank you to the Service League of Greenville!! These ladies helped us with a last minute need for meals over the Christmas holiday. We appreciate you coming together on such short notice to provide a delicious dinner for our families!

A special thanks to all the Service League of Greenville members who provide these much needed and appreciated meals whether on this occasion or any other — you rock!
