We were a small, but mighty force acting as personal shoppers for the homeless, giving out winter coats and whole combination of other warm "stuff." Metro Baptist Church is still taking donations and volunteering to be a personal shopper happens every Monday, 12:30 - 2:30.
If anyone remembers and knows where to find Patti Parsons Marmer, please let us know!
