Less Than Perfect

In spite of all the good we attempt to do, there are still a number of things that keep us from moving forward, and being all that we want to be. For example:

  • We serve our meals on flimsy paper plates, instead of real china
  • There is seating for only 15 people - sometimes folks have to wait outside
  • Too often we refuse financial aid to someone in need
  • Pies, cakes and other sweets are too often found on our shelves
  • Far too many volunteers are turned away for lack of space to accommodate them
These, and the many other imperfections we live with can actually be good. They confront us every day and challenge us. How can we increase our service to people in need? How can we better engage our volunteers to help make a difference in people's lives? How can we make our small operating space larger in our outreach?

Less than perfect helps us to maintain our heart, our passion, our striving to do more...
