Mobile Loaves and Fishes is an organization the delivers food and clothing to less fortunate people in Woonsocket. St. Luke’s takes the truck on the 3rd Saturday of every month and fills it up with donated food and clothing to bring on the run.

My name is Lily Kerachsky and I am in the sixth grade at Rocky Hill School. I organized a clothing drive a couple of months ago, and now it is time to get those clothes ready for people who need it! I have done 2 GLC programs after school and the summer camp! A big part of GLC is knowing and using your strengths and using them through service. There are lots of different strengths that can be used during this. One example is my top strength is organizing so when I do this I will probably be taking clothes out of a bag and put them in different piles! If you are planning to come, maybe think about how you will be able to jump in, and use your strengths to help others!
