Rosie has been receiving food from Calvary Baptist Church’s Thursday food distribution for a while, and she always arrives early. One very hot summer day, she was standing under a shade tree trying to keep cool while waiting for the food distribution to start. The director of the ministry saw her and invited her inside the air-conditioned building where the food is distributed. While Rosie was enjoying a drink of water and cooling off, she accepted a couple of tasks to help set up for the other guests. Rosie enjoyed helping and the rest is history. Rosie has become a valued and dedicated volunteer.
Receiving food from Calvary’s food distribution has been such a blessing to Rosie and her family. Rosie has three children and six grandchildren. She’s not sure what she would do without the help of the food bank. She loves the fact that she is treated with dignity and volunteers because of her love for helping people and for serving the Lord.
She also feels that no matter who you are, you are God’s child and we are to love one another as we are instructed to do in the Bible. She praises God for being able to be a part of this ministry each week and is thankful for the wonderful food items she receives weekly.
