Food Ministry Serves Over 500 Families In November

By Carroll Crenshaw

Publicity Chairman for

Compassion Ministry


The Month of November was another month of successful service to our community and was made possible by the funding of this ministry from participating churches, businesses, foundations and individuals.


The selfless labor of individuals from Sylva Rena Baptist Church and Adonai Church, plus help from the Water Valley Junior Auxiliary and others, expressed by the packing of hundreds of food boxes helped make this service possible. Also, the labor of men from The Branch of Hope, as well as other individuals, continues to be invaluable as they load hundreds of heavy food boxes into the vehicles of our clients and help with other tasks as needed.


 In the month of November we provided food to 505 families, mostly in Yalobusha county, with a few boxes going to Lafayette county families. These families consist of 797 family members. Following is a break-down of the locations of most of the families we served: Water Valley, 268, Coffeeville, 138, and Oakland, 62. The remainder of the families reside in Scobey, Enid, Tillatoba, and Lafayette County.
