The ROC Report #10

3-10-13

We’re on a roll so far this year. Last year from June to December we helped a total of 58 people not including the 249 Totes of Hope we deliver to the elementary schools each week. So far in 2013 we’ve been able to affect 53 lives as well as the Totes of Hope. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to make a difference for a family on the brink. Some of these people have 6 or 8 children in their home. Thanks to all of you who have helped u...

The ROC Report #9

2-6-13

Did you notice that this is # 9. We’ve been in operation 9 months and it’s wonderful to see how God is blessing by allowing us to help and involve so many people. We thank you for your interest and support in The ROC.

The month of January started off busy. A couple and their dog were traveling with a trucker and ended up stranded in Rifle during one of our very cold weeks in early January that never got out of single digit temps. I was in...

The ROC Report #7

December 17, 2012

Just wanted to share a wonderful experience I had last week. Kim called in sick with flu and so that left me to organize the assembly of and delivery of the 227 Totes of Food. Three of my regular volunteers were going to be gone and one, who showed up, had had a heart condition and was put on oxygen this week. We had 227 totes to pack, load into containers, get up the stairs, into trucks and have delivered by 11 AM. By 10:15 I realized we weren&...

The ROC Report #4

September 2, 2012

The month of August was almost entirely dedicated to getting the Totes of Hope program up and running. There are wonderful things to report.

Kim Regan (Totes Leader) and I met with school principals, counselors and teachers this month primarily to have a face-to-face contact with them so we could begin to know each other. I must say that every meeting was delightful and hopeful. Each one of them are very grateful and eager for this program...

AUGUST 9, 2012

 

I received a lovely note from an elderly lady in Rifle this week encouraging us in the work we are doing at The ROC. She said that she had been a Christian since 23 years of age but had only become a servant of the Lord for the last seven years. (I thought that was a wonderful insight for all of us to think about.) She is in poor health but she petitions the Lord that she be able to recover enough to again serve Christ in a physical and tangible way, perha...

The ROC Report #2

July 9, 2012

Thank you for the encouraging notes we received from many of you about our new endeavor. Your encouragement means so much to us!

The MAJOR thing accomplished this month was the filing of the 501(c)(3) with the IRS on June 22. This will give us our non-profit status. I think the application was 27 pages long. Jeanne did a marvelous job of following the directions, giving me assignments and putting it all together in the proper order so we could...
