Fairbanks Alaska, All we can say is you ROCK!! So proud to call Fairbanks Home!!!There it is again... that sound of silence before the Thanksgiving distribution. The single largest distribution of the year here at the Fairbanks Community Food Bank. Over 100,000 pounds of food in one day...
I sit here in stunned silence, really. What a year. Did you know that 2 weeks ago we had 100 turkeys and 200 hams and we wondered how on earth we were going to distribute Thanksgiving boxes to 2500 households when we only had 100 turkeys and 200 hams?!?! Talk about the story of the loaves and bread: the food that multiplied to fill the need. Nothing short of a miracle.
Every year is amazing, there are stories each year. But this year.... This year of struggles and frustrations as a WORLD. This year of modifications and changes. This year of social distancing and lack of human interaction. This year of hope and healing. This year of standing by each other, helping each other through these struggles. This year of finding reasons to laugh and smile. This year of everyone doing what they could, all they could.... This year....
To tell you we appreciate each one of you is a tremendous understatement. YOU ARE AMAZING! Because of YOU this year has been tremendous, and in truly wonderful ways. Because of you I sit here, thinking about the 2500 turkeys we have downstairs. Thinking about the 2500 pies and cans of yams. Thinking about the stories of families who didn't know this time last year that they would be a recipient instead of a donor. I sit here thinking about you. And I cry. I cry tears of joy at who you are. At the hope you have given me, the staff here, the volunteers, and the recipients: of your love and faithfulness.
Thank you for the silence. Thank you for the joy. Thank you for the ability to go into tomorrow with hope. Thank you. Sleep well, knowing you have set us up for beautiful success! GOOD WORK! Thank you! Till tomorrow... 🙂 Good night all you wonderful people!! See you tomorrow, when more miracles will happen! ~Love, Anne ... See MoreSee Less
