Auburn Stocks Food Bank

When volunteers in Auburn, Wash., prayed at supper that night, they weren't just thankful for the pizza, but for a generous community who gave to the local food bank.

In a two-hour period, nearly 130 volunteers visited 11 neighborhoods and collected 4,828 cans, jars and packages. Volunteers ranged in age from 5-years-old to teenagers to parents, church members, and senior citizens. The Community Action Team at the Auburn Academy Church coordinated this food drive.

"We wanted our community to know that we love them, and we're here for them," says Jay Coon, pastor.
