Feed My People Volunteers

 

Volunteering isn’t just about giving. In fact, most volunteers will tell you they receive far more than they give.

 

If you would like to join our volunteer family, but don’t know where to begin, we can help match your skills, passions, and schedule with a rewarding position at one of our locations.

 

Thank you to these great volunteers from Athleti.Care Physical Therapy

for helping in the South County Thrift store on Saturday. 

 

You really rocked it for us!

Recent Volunteer Memorials

 

It is with heavy hearts that we share news of the passing of two of our volunteers.

 

Virginia (Ginny) Macrum went to her eternal reward on Thursday, October 29th. There will be no memorial service due to current social atmosphere. She is being cremated at Valhalla Mortuary on St. Charles Rock Rd. with a family only gathering.

 

Ginny had been treated for lung cancer earlier in the year and was doing well until the middle of September when she experienced a relapse with tests showing the cancer had metastasized to her brain. Ginny had also developed Covid-19 and subsequently pneumonia.

 

Ginny and her late husband were both volunteers in High Ridge until Bob passed in 2005. She was Feed My People's Finance Officer until she retired and returned to High Ridge where she interviewed on Tuesday and sometimes on Saturday.

 

Condolences and Memorials, in Ginny's name, may be sent to Feed My People at 171 Kingston Drive, 63125. 

 

 

Early Tuesday morning, South County volunteer Phyllis Powers, a regular Thursday interviewer, was struck and killed on Mackenzie Road in Affton as she was apparently heading to a polling site. No other details are available at this time.

 

In the generosity of your hearts, please keep these two beautiful souls in your prayers. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen!

 

 

God Bless You All!
