Thank You!

We could not accomplish our mission of serving our poor and homeless brothers and sisters without the support of community. Thank you to everyone who has participated in donating to Loaves & Fishes from our ongoing Needs Lists. Our programs have received everything from carpet cleaning service to violins. Your thoughtfulness amazes us and is very much appreciated.
