On Monday, morning May 18, Tropical Storm Arthur was sending light waves of rain north into Richmond.
Ronnie Johnson, our head custodian, at Trinity helped me load almost 70 bags of food to deliver to Feed More. With the van loaded, I drove into the city.
If you’ve never been to Feed More it is a series of buildings on Rhoadmiller Street. And if you are at times directionally challenged like me, then that might explain why it took me a few extra minutes to find the drop spot for our donations.
As I was getting ready to start unloading, I saw a gentleman coming out of one of the Feed More buildings. Like me, he was wearing a mask, so it took a few seconds to recognize Trinity member, Dan Nichols.
Dan had just finished a morning shift as a volunteer for Feed More. For many years, Dan has been one of those consistent volunteers for Feed More. Every week he is present helping out.
Today, Dan’s timing could not have been better. He asked if I needed help. And before I could answer yes, Dan had bags in hand heading toward the pod.
Many thanks to Dan for his gracious assist, and many thanks to everyone who donated food on Friday. By the time we finished unloading the Trinity van, the three large bins inside the pod were overflowing.
Nice work Trinity.
