I served at the Collierville Food Pantry and helped people who can't afford meals on a day-to-day basis. I handed out bags of food to people in need. I also helped organize shelves of food within the food pantry in order to keep things organized for their weekly distribution.
I enjoyed representing my church to others in a positive way. It was nice to serve people by giving them something for free and asking for nothing in return.
The associate pastor of my church asked me to take on this project. I got a lot of satisfaction doing this, because the Little Free Library is small and each curbside library does not hold many books, so the 68 books I collected will make a big impact. Doing things as a group are fun and valuable, but since I did this myself, it gave me a lot of personal satisfaction. Collierville Connected was born July 7, 2016 when a small group of leaders at Collierville United Methodist Church caught a vision to reach out to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Within four months, the group had grown to include 8 other Collierville churches inspired to connect, build, and strengthen relationships across our community for the betterment of all. With the opening of the first Neighborhood Resource Center, Collierville Connected launched its Little Free Libraries initiative.
