Wednesday May 12                             From the minutes of Wednesday’s board meeting:

“Joe then let everyone know that they are pouring the slab for his

Friday  May 6
Board meeting at Isaiah 58 building  May 11 at 5:00 PM.
There are several things that need to be discussed.

1.  How is the new direction of travel for our clients working for everyone?

2.  The storage building for me in Proctor has been started.  I will be moving in the next 4-6 weeks, possibly.
So someone will need to be elected to fill my position.

3.  Logan Henry’s school is having a food drive May 17-25.  They will deliver the food to Isaiah on the 27th.

4.  Logan will have his annual fund raiser on July 16.  He will hold it on the parking lot at Isaiah.  Last year he raised over
$2,000.  We need to get the word out and make this one even better.

Let me know of other items that need to be added to the agenda.

Some added items:

Isaiah 58’s annual fund raiser – The Duck Race – will take place Saturday June 4th
at the water park.  Tickets are $10 each.  There is a chance that someone could win a new vehicle.
Paul has tickets.

Another item to work on:  volunteers and food.  There need’s to be a written policy on volunteers occasionally
taking food from the pantry when it is not their day to shop.  Write down your ideas and turn them in at the
meeting Wednesday.

I talked with the clients today then with the volunteers about changing the hours of operation. Everyone was in agreement that we should change the operating schedule when the time changes. That would mean our hours of operation would change to 3-5 PM in November then back to 4-6 PM in March. I’d like to hear your comments on this.

Isaiah 58 is a Christian assistance ministry inspired by God’s word in Isaiah 58:7-8 (Is it not to share your food with the hungry and when you see the naked, to clothe him and not to turn away?  Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear, then your righteousness will go before you and be glory of the Lord will go before you and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard).

We distribute food, clothing, emergency prescription help, and in cooperation with West Texas Opportunities, Salvation Army, and Northside Community Center emergency one time rent and utilities help when we have sufficient funds.  We provide these services to people without regard to race or religious faith.

Need is only the requirement and determinant for the services.  Quantities are based on income and number of members in the family.

We are in constant need of funds, volunteers, food, clothing and above all PRAYER.
