“I must say, It was a very spiritual experience. Ms. Anita motivated her volunteers with some wonderful gospel music. Her volunteer staff was simply amazing. First-class service! 

I was very moved because it had started to rain very hard that morning; however, that didn’t stop their distribution process at all. Ms. Anita was leading from the front, passing out food in the rain as well as flowers and hope to some of the senior clients she served. She didn’t turn anyone away! When she ran out of boxes and products, we went back inside to make more from a closet of reserved food. 

Ms. Anita even had volunteer staff who were close friends and relatives from the State of Georgia. They had brought their grandchildren, who participated in serving her clients. They were so happy, especially to have been taught what it means to serve. A great overall moving experience. 

When we closed out in prayer, she shared a story about how badly she needed refrigeration so she could distribute more. She didn’t pray for the refrigeration herself; she prayed that God would allocate the resources to those most need it! A true act of selflessness!”
