We want to begin this update by thanking each and every person who has helped us to feed literally thousands of meals to the needy in this community. We now have 3 feeding sites here in the city along with the prisoners in the city jail, a rehab center for the disabled, and some hospital patients. To date we have served nearly 270,000 meals, which are prepared in our main kitchen on Calle Kino. We have reached many people with food at our newest feeding site near the railroad tracks off Samuel Ocaña. People come each day from the little houses built along the railroad tracks to eat a hot lunch, and are frequently able to take food home with them to have another meal in the evening. Each day at each of the feeding sites we are able to send food home with those who need another meal for their children that day. It’s hard to imagine the desperation they feel in trying to keep their children well fed. We are in need of volunteers who would be willing to drive to the schools and serve the neediest students. This requires about 1-1 1/2 hours per day, 5 days per week. If you have 1 day or more a week to volunteer, please contact Nohe at the main kitchen on Kino. There is a great need this time of the year for blankets and warm clothes and we appreciate those of you who have helped us in this area. It’s heartbreaking to imagine the suffering these people have experienced in recent weeks with all the rain we’ve had, so anything you might be able to donate that helps them to keep warm would be wonderfully appreciated. Monetary donations can be mailed to Mission Heartbeat, Box 1032, Lukeville, AZ 85341. Please make checks payable to Mission Heartbeat and indicate that the donation is for 2 FISH. One hundred percent of your donation will go directly to provide food and necessities at the feeding sites. If you are calling from the U.S., call (405) 227-9433.
