Thank you Eagle Scout Joseph Nguyen

Loaves & Fishes would like to thank Eagle Scout Joseph Nguyen. Joseph approached us at Father Larry’s Farm and asked if there were any wood project items we needed. The Farm Committee welcomed him with open arms and requested six wooden picnic table benches and a bench with a back. After discussing the type of benches needed, Joseph then planned out the Eagle Scout project, drew up the diagrams, made a list of materials, calculated material costs, and had everything signed off by his Scout Advisor. Joseph asked for the Farm Committee’s approval, and they were very impressed with his plan and bench design.

The completed benches are very sturdy and will last the Farm quite some time, even out in the elements. Joseph and his proud mother and father are in the picture along with Larry Vollman from the Farm Committee.

The Loaves & Fishes Farm was named after our Founder: Father Larry Largente. Father Larry shared this message:

“Joseph, the farm thanks you, Loaves & Fishes thanks you, the Lord thanks you, and I thank you. God Bless for this symbol of what is good about Eagle Scouts”.

Backpack Drive August 8th, 2014

“Sharkie! Sharkie! Sharkie!” All the kids yelled.

Sharkie joined us again for the annual Loaves & Fishes Backpack drive, making the event even more joyful for the kids. Held at one of our serving site, Saint Maria Goretti, Loaves & Fishes gave out more than 200 hundred backpacks filled with school supplies including: notebooks, pencils, pens, folders, pencil pouches, crayons and color pencils to Kindergartners through 12th graders. What a great way to start school by having Sharkie, and backpacks filled with goodies!

As the newest member of Loaves & Fishes, I felt enthusiastic and blessed to see the smiles and giggles from youth while they received their backpacks. People were laughing, mingling and many children exclaimed with happiness to their parent’s, “Mommy! Mommy! I got a backpack and its filled with stuff!” Moments like these make you realize why you are here. Now, I can’t wait to fill those backpacks again next year. Also, an immense gratitude to the Shark’s Foundation for helping children succeed in their education. Thank you!
