We currently have 5 pallet-sized totes in the garage at The Camden Promise. Each tote is about 1000 pounds. That 1/2 ton of food per pallet. Food that people set out on their doorsteps. Food that letter carriers picked-up. Food that will be sorted and sent out to people in the Camden community. Food that will feed a 6 year old. Food that will let a mom put gas in her car. Food that will let a dad focus on working. Food that is quite simply God's blessing.
Oh, and there are 5 more totes coming!!! That's another 5000 pounds of food. So, if my math is correct, that's roughly 10,000 pounds of food coming into the food shelf and going out into our community. Five tons of food. Wow.
If you have any time, we need help sorting food. Please contact Roxi at 612-568-7362. She'll help you figure out a time for you to dig through the totes and sort food.
