Bob the Builder Award: Benedictine Sisters of Kansas City

There are eight little nuns living in Kansas City North who are making a difference. These ladies run a volunteer-run thrift store, which they use their proceeds to help fund their food pantry. The food pantry has served the following number:
2005--699 families
2006--1146 families
2007--2497 families
2008--2484 families
They do not get any financing from the Catholic Church. One came to speak to us at Rotary on Friday. She is from Micronesia and kept saying how giving Americans really are. "Those who have share with those who do not have." I have never met EIGHT people who were able to feed 2484 families with so little. I think there is a work with those ladies waiting for me....:)
