Return to Home Depot for lunch?
I have invited food establishments around Home Depot to be part of the blessing for our community.  So far I know 10 pizzas will come from Golden Corral, 25 lunches from Wendy's, 40 coupons for a burger at The Habit.  Mountain Mike's Pizza has promised to help as well as Popeyes.  
There may be more.  When we all PULL TOGETHER everyone wins!  Children will win with beds.  Volunteers win with a free lunch and the joy of serving.  Businesses promote their product.  Our schools, churches, parks and community in general are beautified. AND GOD WINS!  We are loving God through loving our neighbor!  This is AWESOME.  This is the way God intends us to live!
Be a HERO and serve!
Thank you for serving!
