Christ is born!  Glorify Him! 

Meet Mr. Humble!   Our friend, Orlando Humble dropped by the other day.  Earlier this year Orlando moved from Texas to Atlanta for a job. When the job fell through, Orlando found himself living in a tent with stray dogs for company. He heard about Loaves and Fishes and started coming for the daily meal. 

In his own words, “I was blessed by the hospitality of the Church. I would have starved without it. I depended on Loaves and Fishes to eat and the park for water and a bathroom, where I could keep clean. One day I decided I was fed up with the homeless life and wanted to better myself. I talked to Craig about my problems and he offered to help.  He loaned me a lawnmower! Craig also made some flyers for me and my business took off!  I came back to hire guys who wanted to work. Now I have an apartment, a truck and all my own tools. It’s December and I’m still busy working.  All my first customers stuck with me and I’m always getting new calls. The program was the vehicle that helped me go forward.  It’s an honor to come back.”

Please make a year-end charitable donation to Loaves & Fishes!  Beyond the Christmas Day meal and small gifts, Loaves & Fishes offers food and hospitality to more than 50 people a day, every week of the year. We can’t do this without you.  Send a check today or donate online a recurring monthly gift of $15, $25 or more, to continue to support this worthwhile program.  You may donate online by clicking the button on the left.

 Thank you and may God bless your generosity!  

 In Christ,
