2017 Food for the Needy
   We are all so very blessed to be able to enjoy the RV lifestyle that we do.

1 John 3:17-18 tells us to “give back” by helping those in need.  “ . . . but whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."

We have a great opportunity at the New Orleans Grand National Rally for our club (CTC) to give back.

Del Houser is chairing a CTC food drive (CTC Cares) at the Grand National to support “Love in Action”, a local food pantry that helps feed the needy. Please take a moment to visit their website to learn of the good they do: Love In Action .  Be sure to watch the video on the home page and read the “about us” page to get an understanding of the all the ways this organization helps their area.

Noel Bitner, a New Orleans native and one of your 2017 Grand National planners, personally visited the facility and spoke with founder Gail Murray to see first hand what the organization was all about.  She was very favorably impressed.

Del Houser is personally challenging all CTC members attending the rally for each rig to donate two cases of canned veggies or similar quantities of other non-perishable dry goods (rice, pasta, oatmeal, beans).  Veggie suggestions are creamed and whole corn; green, lima, chili and white beans; carrots, succotash, peas, etc.

To help facilitate storage and handling, Del asks that you bring canned goods donations in boxes that are sealed or in cases with cardboard bottoms that are pre-wrapped in plastic or saran-type wrap.  Sam’s, Costco, and Aldi’s are good places to purchase these items. There will be a storage room available on site and a golf cart will be available to pick up your donations from your rigs and transport them to the storage room.

With your help, “CTC Cares” will be a great success and hopefully incorporated into future Grand National Rallies as we grow our membership and move forward.

Thanks for your participation,
2017 Grand National Rally Planning Committee
