Among the many fun games and events we have planned for you guys during the LAUNCH week, the food drive is my ultimate favorite event. I’m a LAUNCH leader three years now and being in a wheelchair unfortunately I can’t do much, but nonetheless the conversations I have with some of you along the way and the whole event in knowing that you are feeding a child in need is rewarding in itself. Friday evening we will get in our groups and go into the local community to collect the bags of food people left for us. It is a supper fun time that we get to know each other a bit better, running ahead to get the bags to load up the food car that will follow us, and just enjoy the relaxing evening not worrying about the books! Once we get back to campus and see the big food truck being loaded up with donations and students creating an assembly line handing down bags after bags to fill up the truck it is honestly an overwhelming sight to see. Feeling satisfied that you contributed in this awesome event that will feed and nourish those in need, what a blessing that is!!
I encourage you to fully engage in this food drive and look forward to it because it FUN and the energy leave will be awesome; just imagine the end result when you will see that food truck full of bags knowing that you did this, and turning this beautiful sight into praise and thanksgiving to God how AMAZING is that!!!
You chose to attend Redeemer for a reason; you could have gone to McMaster or another educational institution, but you are at Redeemer, why? Because you want to glorify God in all that you do and are. The food drive is a perfect start.
