“Offer to God the voice of Thanksgiving.” (Psalm 50:14)
One part of our ministry at Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen that many may not know about is our Thrift Store, located at 1620 N. Palafox (850-438-4166). This facet of the ministry, while providing revenue from the sale of donated items, is also a blessing to the many homeless families with children who stay at our Emergency Family Shelter. Our families, according to size and need, are given vouchers that allow them to shop at our Thrift Store at no cost to them.
One such family with two young boys recently went shopping at the store. After getting back to their room here at Loaves and Fishes, the mother was telling one of our staff about how excited the boys were with what was to them, their new clothes. She said they actually put on a fashion show, changing into each new article of clothing. What a blessing to see the joy of these children over such a little thing.
Thanks for your support of our ministry. We keep you in our prayers. Let me also encourage you to donate to and shop at our Thrift Store. We have some great bargains.
Peace in Yeshua,
