Citizen of the Week

Thursday, December 13, 2012

In keeping with not only the holiday season but also the eternal season of being hungry when you don't have any money, the Citizen is glad this week to salute the volunteers of the Flint Street Food Bank. Enough good cannot be said of this team of hardworking volunteers who come week after week, Mondays and Wednesdays for groceries, Tuesdays and Thursdays for hot meals, and practice Christ's work in the most basic of ways, feeding the hungry. "When I first moved here I was flat broke," said this week's nominator. "I didn't even know this place existed, but I walked by accidentally and stopped to check it out. It took me a couple weeks to get my first paycheck when I did get a job, and Flint Street kept me from starving out." Thank you Flint Street.
