Thank you from the Food Bank
The people of Southwood are very generous.
You give your time – in 2021 more than 2400 hours of volunteer service.
You share your talents – the Piecemakers tie hundreds of quilts and the Garden Crew grows tons of produce each year.
You share your financial gifts – special offerings during holidays and Mission Sunday support the many ways our church serves our community and global partners.
One of those partners supported has been the Food Bank of Lincoln. Southwood has been partnering for many years with the Food Bank to feed our community. Our partnership has grown in response to the growing needs of our neighbors because of our shared values and our appreciation that we are able to accomplish more by working together.
So, when the Food Bank asked for Southwood’s help with their building campaign, it wasn’t a question of if we could help but how. And because of your generosity, Southwood was able to give $55,000 to the Food Bank’s building campaign.
“Dear Southwood Lutheran Friends,
My heart is still bouncing thinking about your support of our Raising Our Response campaign. Not only your generous financial gift but the gifts of your understanding, encouragement of the Food Bank’s work and most of all the firmly rooted senses of dignity, empathy and hope you have for the neighbors we serve together”.
Thank you, Michaella Kumke, CEO and Executive Director of the Food Bank of Lincoln
