I was emcee again today. The temperature was in the 90's, the place has only old fashioned air conditioning (windows and fans), and it was standing room only for about 2 hours. A total of 124 families, if I remember right. We had to stay open an extra half hour to take care of everybody.
We had a lot of new families, who had never been to a food pantry before. They are sooooo grateful. Of course, George Will would call them crybabies, and Phil Gramm would call them whiners. How can any decent human being be a Republican?
