                                                Directors Report for November 2012

Thanksgiving was a wonderful time of giving. We received food from so many of our churches, Boy Scout Troops, Sunday School
Classes and individuals. Fords Chapel was very generous in providing turkey dinners with all the trimmings to 25 families. We were
very blessed to see the joy on the faces of these clients. Fran Flueler from Manna House was a life saver providing freezer space to
store the dinners until we could get them distributed. It is wonderful when all work together.

Among the clients we served this month were several single fathers struggling to keep their families together. We are seeing many
more men needing assistance with rent, utilities, etc. than before. Several have lost their jobs, been laid off or had hours cut. Times
are definitely tough for many.

We have been interviewing many applicants for Karen’s position. As you know, Karen will be leaving as a paid employee but will
continue as a volunteer when time and events allow. She will be greatly missed, especially by me, but we have some very good
candidates and will make a decision soon.

Christmas is right around the corner! We are seeing an increase in clients needing assistance and also an increase in individual
donations. We are very thankful for the support from the community as we continue to grow and provide the best services we can.

Please continue to pray for HAP and our many clients.
