From the desk of Vickie Hugger, Board Chair:                                                              SKW Staff

As I have continued on my life journey, learning the reward of service to others, I have                   Vickie Hugger
found myself more and more attracted to motivating thoughts, especially wisdom or                            Gail Spiers
“brainy” quotes. For example, Thomas Jefferson said, “Whenever you do a thing, act as if                 Lee Anne Minton
all the world were watching.” Mahatma Gandhi said, “We must become the change we                       Operations Manager
want to see in the world.” And, Booker T. Washington said, “I have learned that success                      Julie Smith
is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the ob-             Asst. Operations Manager
stacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.” And perhaps the most                        Jennie Schardt
prominent, Jesus said, “Inasmuch as you have done it for the least of these, you have                 Vol. Admin. Assistant
done it for Me.” If you take time, a week of two perhaps, to mediate on these quotes and                     Gail Spiers
really contemplate their meaning, you will find immense power in the strength and convic-           Vol. Back Pack Coordinator
tion of the words. They serve as a compass for attitude, ethics, and action.                               Betsy Johnson

Lately, however, I have been meditating on one of Mother Theresa’s quotes, “If you can’t                       Drivers
feed one hundred people, then just feed one.” Wow! The power, wisdom, courage, and                         Richard Smith
conviction of that quote! It forces me to ask, am I doing what I can do to “feed” others?                  Brenda Pruitt
Am I using my resources and talents to be part of the solution for problems in this world?
Like many of you, I sometimes focus on what I can NOT do. I sometimes think that I am              Board of Directors-2013
not a great orator, gifted musician, or financial wizard, but, if I let it, optimism always wins
                                                                                                           Sherry Dancy
out and I eventually come around to the thought, surely there is something I can do to
                                                                                                             Kim Ellis
help someone else. Surely there is something I can do to encourage a friend or neighbor.

Surely there is a place of service for me. Logically, this begs the question, is there a place
                                                                                                       Nada Ann Lawrimore
of service for you? Have you found your place or                                                          Marla McNeill

We also want to thank other partners who have been gracious, supportive and very, very kind during the recent
months of transition. Partners like Bill Michael, Cam Finley, Tom Bartlett, Jody Call, Brett Yates, George Roark, and
many more. Blessings to all!

We are also indebted to a host of individuals, community organizations, and church families who continue to faithfully
support our service. Non-profit organizations across the state continue to struggle as the economy makes its very slow
recovery; but, Wilkes has been found faithful and SKW continues to feed the hungry. We have had to make adjust-
ments but are still able to supply food through our Client Choice Pantry and Backpack Program. Due to budget con-
straints, we will not be able to provide our Project Joy boxes for the 2013 holiday season; however, we will work to pro-
vide additional food products for the holidays through our Pantry and Backpacks. Concerns for the hungry persist as
unemployment benefits expire for many in our community, but rest assured that your donations will always
be used prudently so that we can serve as many families as possible.

We are also grateful for the high school students who serve through their Senior Projects. Thousands of
dollars in donations have helped to feed the hungry in Wilkes because of caring high school students who
truly want to give back to their community. THANK YOU! You are not only a blessing to the people you help feed, but
you are encouragement to the SKW volunteers and staff!

                                   Of course, there are still times we must purchase our food through either a local grocery
                                   store or Second Harvest Foodbank. When we purchase through Second Harvest we pay
                                   $.19/lb for all food items. The cost covers the administrative expense associated with
                                   Second Harvest collections/storage and is an absolute blessing! Please let us know if
                                   you are aware of other resources we should pursue; we value your input and appreciate
                                   your thoughtfulness!

                                 Remember, Samaritan will accept food (fresh, canned or boxed) or financial donations.
                                 The fresh food (breads, garden vegetables, eggs, etc.) is immediately
placed in our Client Choice Pantry and the canned and boxed foods are placed in either the Pantry
or Backpack Program, depending on the suitability of the donated item. Many church groups, espe-
cially youth groups, continue to hold food drives to support Samaritan Kitchen. Please know that we
could not minister to the hundreds and hundreds of individuals without your support. Bless you for
being part of the solution in feeding the hungry!

At the end of the school year, we were providing 670 Backpacks each week at a cost of $7.80 per
Backpack. That requires $5,226.00 per week, a team of volunteers to pack the Backpacks, and driv-             FEEDING
ers from each school to pick up the packs and deliver them to the Backpack Coordinator at the school.           OUR
It is easy to see that without donations, volunteers and other caring individuals, it would be difficult if
not impossible to feed so many children. We are truly blessed – as a community and as an agency!

“   There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, simple and useful life.”
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

I believe Booker T. Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, John Wooden, and Jesus had it right! Let’s continue our work
TOGETHER to make a positive difference in Wilkes.

In His Love,

From the desk of Julie Smith, Operations Manager:
Blessings to you all, things sure have been busy the last few
months. We have completed our move to our new location and get
ting settled in. We are very thankful for the folks at Wilkes
Telecommunications for the support that they have shown us in
setting up our new facility. Many folks have been involved in
getting us to this point. Our staff, volunteers, and board have all
put in hours of sweat to get things moved and set up and ready
to open for business. Cleaning, assembling shelves, restocking,
loading and unloading trucks with equipment and countless other jobs were among the task that volun-
teers helped us to complete. For that we give them a great big thank you!
We also would like to say a very special thank you to Celebration/High Rock Church for the use of their
facility for the last five years. We were very blessed to have their support. Thank you, Celebration/
High Rock team!
Volunteers - Congratulations go to Robin for coordinating the volunteers for the move and getting new
volunteers involved at the new location. She is doing a tremendous job as volunteer coordinator for
SKW. Thank you, Robin!
Program Information -
  In April we saw 435 families, 1058 individuals, 30 new families and sent out 21,160 pounds of food.
  In May we saw 278 families, 698 individuals, 15 new families and sent 13,960 pounds of food.
  In June we saw 364 families, 908 individuals, 13 new families and sent out 18,160 pounds of food.
There has been a slight decrease in the numbers only because we are still adjusting to our new location.
We expect the numbers to rise over the next few months due to unemployment benefits running out
and Key City closing and people finding that they are in need of assistance.
On June 15 SKW held an open house/15th year celebration at our new location, approximately 75 at-
tended the 4 hour event. Many thanks goes to the local area business that helped provide the refresh-
ments for the event, Subway - 421; Dixie Doughnuts; Tipton’s; Brushy Mountain Smokehouse; Just
Save; BoJangles - Wilkesboro; Biscuitville; Chick-Fil-A, Golden Corral.and SKW board members. As part
of the event a plaque was hung in honor of SKW’s founding mother, Judith Holleman –Anderson recog-
nizing her dream and vision in creating Samaritan Kitchen.
With your donations and volunteer’s time Project Backpack ended. Project Backpack served 672 stu-
dents with Summer Survival bags, filled with food and personal items and some special treats such as
activities or toys. We are so thankful to the folks that donated items and their time to make all this
The down-turned economy has again played a part in everything that we do here at SKW, we once again
ask you to open your hearts to the needs of your neighbor’s and friends and support SKW, as always
your help and the grace of God, we will be able to meet the needs of so many in our community. Pray for
us, as we continue to go about God’s work in “Feeding the Hungry in Wilkes”.
May God Richly Bless each of you,

               daily. He has been designated the official volunteer custodian. Matthew is always
               smiling and willing to help anyway possible.

               Glenn VanCleve was the volunteer of the month for March. Glenn has volunteered
               at Samaritan Kitchen for about a year. Glenn started volunteering with our Back-

               and Thursdays, as well as our weekly trip to Second Harvest Food Bank on Tues-

Help us! Help a child carry home hope!

When you donate one or more of the above items they will be placed in back-
packs and sent home to children in the Wilkes County School system (pre-k to
early college) who are at risk of being hungry over the weekend. In addition to
the food, we also want to provide some of the most basic hygiene needs as well
as some fun items for these children to have during the summer (Summer Sur-
vival Bags).

We hope to serve approximately 800 students each week. We consider it a great
honor to be able to provide this service to Wilkes County Students. We are ask-
ing for your continued support in making this a reality for the children.

Thank you for considering collecting these items or making a monetary dona-
tion for the purchase of these items for Project Backpack and Summer Survival.
