This season we saw fewer children than in previous years and we helped several people with very significant medical issues. In spite of various transportation problems, including the ongoing ailments of University Hills' aging van, we were able to pick up and deliver neighbors each Monday night and Tuesday morning. (But we REALLY look forward to adding another church, with a van, into our partnership!)
Overall, it was another very successful season and we all look forward to beginning the 2011 - 12 season in December. Signups for volunteers will begin in October, right after the Greater Charlotte Crop Walk is over.
In the meantime, social ministry is exploring other ways to be involved with our homeless neighbors the remaining eight months of the year.
