Volunteers from Baltimore’s Parkville Baptist Church, break down cardboard boxes

Rev. Kurt Wesolowski, Marge Warren and Paul Wesolowski, volunteers from Baltimore’s Parkville Baptist Church, break down cardboard boxes after packing snacks for goody bags. The treat packages will be part of the Back to School Bash Saturday, August 7, at the AO Ministry Center. – MARK BROWN | THE STANDARD BANNER

The work of Appalachian Outreach and those who have made it a success for 37 years now are in effect a sermon illustration. In writing his first epistle to the fledgling church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul said the body of Christ consists of many parts that work together.

AO Ministry Center Coordinator Karrie Foust can easily draw a parallel to the nonprofit’s success as she discusses the importance of those who volunteer, write checks, grantmaking agencies and businesspeople, along with those who provide foodstuffs, furniture and clothing through the donation center.
