People from the Armed Forces Retirement Home gave back to the community in a big way today.
They spent the majority of their life serving their country, now they are giving back to their community! The Protestant Congregation at the Armed Forces Retirement Home presented Feed my Sheep with a $3,000 check. Feed my Sheep Chairman of the Board David Lion with Feed my Sheep said, “They gave the better part of their whole life in service and now in their retirement years, they are still continuing to give. It is just amazing.”
Wayland Webb says giving back has always been second nature to him. Webb and other members in his group knew they wanted to help feed the homeless population in Gulfport. “It is just a good, warm, fuzzy feeling. That is all I can say about that and it is just something I have been doing all of my life.”
Donations like this one help keep Feed my Sheep up and running throughout the year. “It goes to great uses. We feed about 115,000 meals per year, half of those are in bound and half are at the establishment Monday through Friday.”
Feed my Sheep is always looking for volunteers to help out. If you would like to get involved you can call or go online. “We have a very minimal staff that is there full time. We accept volunteers and we accept donations, any way people feel comfortable helping out.”
