We are grateful for the generous response of so many. We continue to receive contributions as we increase the distribution of food. Today we fed kids who were not in school because of delay of the opening of school, the residents of Canfield Green and Oakmont Townhomes, many people who came by the church and the people who are served by a neighboring pantry. Over a quarter of the food donated so far was distributed in this one day.
Many people are doing amazing work to serve in this time. In our focus on food we are striving to live out this call of Bishop Tutu:
“Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

“There’s a cool mix of people here, all very supportive.”
“It’s a very welcoming community….you’re always remembered by name.”
“There’s a very strong family feeling at St. Stephen’s.”
“After the service, people genuinely enjoy hanging out together.”

“I want my kids to feel like they have a rock in their lives, and this community provides that.”
