Many, many thanks to all who were able to help out at the BUCM Soup Kitchen.

What a SUPER TEAM!  


The morning Team did a wonderful job 'Preparing and Cooking' a delicious pork chop, white potatoes, and mixed veg hot meal.  And the

'Serving and Clean-Up' Team did an outstanding job serving up meals to the needy and the homeless.      

It is TRULY volunteers like all of you, who continue to help and support BUCM, by offering folks nutritious meals at the Soup Kitchen, that makes our Ministry the success it is here Burke County.    

Thanks again for DEDICATION and all your HELP,
