Blessing of the Backpacks Food Drive is a Huge Success!     Thank you does not begin to convey the gratitude for all the food donated.  The food donations dropped off last Friday, to benefit the Broadview-Thomson K-8 Food Program, just kept coming and coming and coming!  Samantha Woogerd, the BTK-8 Food Program Coordinator said this was easily more than double what they have ever received from St. John!  Thank you all for your generosity!
