For over 15 years, Sheray McDowell and her volunteer missionaries- have been traveling throughout the Greater Hartford region assisting local residents, church groups, halfway houses, senior citizen complexes and those in need with various food items. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic the missionaries work has expanded, as their car caravans filled with food items, now daily go street to street and home to home delivering not only needed bread and health aid items, but additionally checking in on the health, wellness, and those increasing concerns of our community members as we all continue to “stay home-stay safe”.

“The Bread Lady” and Head Missionary –  Sheray McDowell states, “I enjoy taking care of others, and during these difficult times there are just so many more of our citizens that need someone to care for them”. Sheray continues, “my missionaries and I are constantly being contacted for assistance, and we simply cannot say no to anyone in need- be it a simple loaf of bread, or just being there to talk to someone – where-ever there is a need we will be there”.
