Greensburg Community Bread of Life poised to expand with building purchase

first_imgGreensburg, In. — The Greensburg Community Bread of Life Board of Directors are pleased to announce the purchase of the Meyer Building directly behind our current location. Bread of Life has been looking to expand for some time, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to acquire a location so close to our long-term home at 700 East Randall Street. The new building will provide immediate storage relief for the thousands of pounds of food rescued by the organization every month.In 2011, Bread of Life partnered with Gleaners Food Bank, allowing the organization to receive donations of excess food that might otherwise go to waste from local businesses such as Walmart, Aldi, and Thrive Market. Bread of Life also regularly utilizes unused food from Greensburg Community Schools, KB Foods, Pizza Hut, and Subway in the service of our clients. We are extraordinarily blessed to live in such a generous community, where we receive such an incredible level of support.The purchase of the Meyer Building is a critically important step in the advancement of the mission of Bread of Life, which is to fight hunger in our community by providing a free, nutritious meal to anyone in need; provide a safe haven, where all are free of judgment; and help those in need, in the hope that they will in turn give back to the community. “We left it in God’s hands to meet our needs and He never disappoints when you wait on His guidance. We are so thankful!” states Melissa Foist, Executive Director of Bread of Life.If you would like to support the Greensburg Community Bread of Life, we always accept donations of both food and cash, and are always in need of volunteers to help prepare and serve meals.

Drinkwater completes Aston Villa move

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater has completed a loan move to Aston Villa until the end of the season. Drinkwater spent the first half of the season on loan at Burnley, but that expired on January 6 and he has now joined Villa after Chelsea agreed to continue to pay a significant proportion of his wages. He will not play against his old club Leicester in Wednesday’s Sky Live Carabao Cup semi-final as he is cup-tied. Drinkwater’s first game in a Villa shirt could be Sunday’s game at home to the champions, Manchester City, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League. Villa had made an approach to Chelsea to take Olivier Giroud on loan for the rest of the season, but competition rules dictate that only one loan is allowed between the same two Premier League clubs, and so – with Giroud hoping to reunite with Antonio Conte at Inter Milan – Dean Smith went for Drinkwater instead. Drinkwater managed less than an hour playing time in the Premier League after joining Burnley in the summer, and an injured ankle meant he missed several weeks of football in September after being attacked by a gang of men outside a Manchester nightclub. Villa are confident Drinkwater is fit and ready to go straight into the first team, to deputise for John McGinn who is out until March with an ankle injury. Drinkwater was a key member of Leicester’s Premier League-winning side in 2015-16 before moving to Chelsea for £35 million in September 2017.Tags: Aston VillaChelseaDanny DrinkwaterManchester Citylast_img read more
