Frazier Brown was our first Chairman of the Twelfth Street Food Pantry Board of Directors. Frazier's heart was in the pantry and we will never forget the many great things he did for his love, the Twelfth Street Food Pantry.
First Chairman of the Board
Andre Woods though a serious and highly organized man, had a smile that would light up a room. He loved being able to give back and his love was evident as he distributed bags of food to the clientele of the food pantry. We miss that scowl and beautiful smile
Eileen Love truly lived up to her surname. She loved everyone and one way she exhibited that love was in her volunteer work at the food pantry. She spent many of her years helping others. Eileen had a sense of humor that was contagious. Just her presence meant joy.

As we continue their wonderous devotion to our God in service to the community, we shall remember Mother Funderburg's guiding scripture, Proverbs 3:5-6, "You must trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to thine own understanding but in all thine ways acknowlege him and he shall direct your path.

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
Frances was a teacher nurse at heart. Even in the pantry she established her teaching mode speaking on diabestes, high blood pressure and other ailments troubling our clientele. She cared deep in her heart and exhibited an unshakeable faith. In all situations she would proclaim, "God is good . . . in all things God is good!"
