We are a Pantry Partner with Kumler Outreach Ministries. That means we provide 145 cans of chili with beans each month to Kumler. We have five bins that are each filled with 29 cans of chili with beans monthly and are then delivered to Kumler. We have just completed our fourth year as a Pantry Partner and have made our 145 can quota each month.

For you "bean counters", that is 6,960 cans of chili with beans over a four year period! Or, nearly 1,750 cans annually! Given that each can weighs almost one pound, we have given over 6,500 pounds of chili or 3 ΒΌ tons! From 2 Corinthians 9:7, "Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

Thank you for your faithful chili with beans giving...or as Pastor Chuck has told us, paraphrasing this Bible verse, "God loves a chili giver".
