Loaves & Fishes – Thank you volunteers!

This past Saturday, it was time for the big one. Loaves and Fishes, the biggest volunteer event at Nassau Church, returned. We got up early, loaded up dozens of meatloaves, hundreds of bagged lunches and trays of brownies for the trip to Trenton. And while we were neither driving at Mach 2 nor flying with our hair on fire, we did arrive on time, and our work day volunteers kicked into action. Teams of people put together the take-home meals, cooked the main meal, and ultimately served a veritable feast of meatloaf, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy.

And although I tend to fly by the seat of my pants, our coordinating committee members, Sharyn and Dave Kerschner, Claire Mulry, Angie and Allen Olsen, and Sallye Zink managed to keep us out of the danger zone.

Dozens served, hundreds were fed, and ultimately the work of our Lord was done. Special thanks to ALL the volunteers who gave their time, talent and resources to make Loaves and Fishes 2022 a success.

With gratitude,

Scott Harmon

Loaves & Fishes: Aug. 20 & 21, 2021

…until all are fed

The summer is heating up, and plans for the annual Loaves and Fishes is underway! That means we need bag lunches and cookies to feed approximately 400 guests at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Trenton on Saturday, August 21.

We are again requesting your help in the largest annual mission event of Nassau Presbyterian Church.  More people participate in Loaves and Fishes than any other mission project at NPC.

While we do not need the large group of volunteers to serve the meal in Trenton, we do need lots of volunteers to prepare some things in advance and drop them off at Nassau Church on Friday, August 20, 5:30-7:30PM

 We need 400 packed bag lunches that our guests will take away when they leave.  For the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches please put peanut butter on both pieces of bread – it helps the sandwich last longer since it may be a couple of days between preparing the sandwich and consumption.

We also need 100 dozen cookies (in bags of three cookies) that will be distributed as the dessert to the hot meal being served. (As of July 15 all cookie spots have been selected. Thank you!!)

With many hands, we are confident that once again, Nassau Presbyterian Church will show the love of God to our neighbors in need.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
