On Monday, May 30, 2022, H.E.L.P.S Ministry held a Memorial Day Cookout for the community of St. Charles and Elgin, Illinois.
Food For Friends volunteers Nick and Karen showed up at 2pm to help with the drinks and meal. The tables were spread out in the parking lot and the food was already being served by the HELPS ministry families. The food preparation was handled by Alex and Ashley, this was their first-time hosting.
A special prayer was given by a guest. There was an abundance of food for the guests to enjoy hamburgers, steaks, pork chops, chicken, ribs and hot dogs with all the trimmings including pasta salad, baked beans, potato salad, and a number of desserts. Music was playing and the guests were enjoying each other's company.
The turnout was great, over 100 people attended the event. All the food was donated, as Ashley stated, "The Lord provided everything."
