It's crazy. I would not have thought it was possible just a few months ago...
But right now, Mercy Chefs is providing more meals than at any time in our history.
Last week, we served and distributed over 515,000 MEALS. Not too long ago, that was more than we served over several months.
I was sure things were going to slow down at least a little in July. The pace only increased. Then August started -- the peak of summer. Surely the crush of need would subside. Not a chance. Last week was our BUSIEST week in our history.
It's only Tuesday, but I can see that this week is equally challenging and equally demanding on our staff and our budget.
Can you help? Will you prayerfully consider helping by sponsoring 100, 250, 500, 1,000, 2,000 or more meals so we can reach out with God's love to elderly shut-ins and hurting families who are coming to us for help? Go here to make your tax-deductible gift:
I only ask because the need is so great. For every family's need that we meet, it seems there are dozens more who also need our help.
As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your partnership with Mercy Chefs. I'm so grateful for the relatively small army of faithful friends who have carried us through this unprecedented season with your prayers and your gifts.
May God richly bless you,
P.S. On top of all this, we are starting to watch another tropical system that meteorologists say could become the 10th named storm of this young season. Any response would be IN ADDITION TO reaching tens of thousands of people every day through our COVID response across the country that reached over a HALF MILLION people last week alone. We need your help to meet the need this week. Go here:
