I work for a large, national, faith-based not-for-profit food bank who receives regular donations from Feed The Children. One of their regular donations to us are boxes of miscellaneous non-food items. The agencies we serve love them and always anticipate opening the boxes to inspect the contents. One of the not-for-profit organizations that we support on the west side of Indianapolis received a box with an assortment of extra large gauze pads. The director of the pantry wasn't sure if she'd ever be able to "move" them out of the pantry but decided to place them on an "unlimited" table within the pantry. When they opened the doors for their pantry, the first client was a veteran in a wheelchair who had lost his leg in a war while serving our country. Due to a sore at the amputation site, he was unable to wear his prosthesis. He needed extra large gauze pads to place between the prosthesis and the amputation site - and there they were just for him just when he needed them. What a blessing for him and for the pantry workers to witness.
