WOW!!….Could it get any better than this?

Posted on 04 March 2012 by robertflournoy

Waking up to  a Sunny day with the excitement to get things done lead into a very

productive time in the Community and on the Campus at Irvine Valley College. Our

day started at 9:00 am with preparation for Harvesting Oranges on the campus

with support from Crytal Love President of the Green team one of the many clubs

that are active on campus. We were not shore exactly what to expect since the

Oranges really were  not suppose to be ready until May or June but we took a chance

hoping we would not be disappointed and we weren’t. We were able to Harvest on

over 50 trees but with a few volunteers we had to leave the rest for next week. We

will invite more Organizations to come out next time.

See Gabriel Reyes:

 

Our day continued by picking up food for our  Community event we had scheduled

for later that day for an apartment complex in Santa Ana. We served 20 families

with  enough food for a week and preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We do not

believe in just feeding the body we must feed the spirit too because “Man does not live

by bread alone but from every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God”

 

On another note Vineyard of Anaheim Hills received 20 crates of Strawberry’ and

Saddleback Church Food Pantry received 11 crates. Saddleback Food Pantry has

been supporting L&F x10 in our gleaning projects by sending a huge

number of volunteers on every project. Last Summer we had over 150 volunteers

from Saddleback come out and glean produce from the Farm Land for their Pantry.

When you have 1,500 people on a volunteer list like Saddleback we are expecting this

Summer to be very exciting.
