Pfeiffer student, Logan Robinson, wakes up very early one Saturday a month and rides his bike, rain or shine, to Perry Christian Church to volunteer for the Angel Food Ministry. He heard about the ministry that provides food at a low cost to local families from PCC Minister Craig Ott and decided to get involved over a year ago. Logan and other volunteers begin at 7:00am sorting and packaging food for pickup. At first, Logan just pushed carts and loaded groceries, but he has proven himself and now is responsible for more important jobs and ways of helping people. Logan takes his servitude very seriously, and even turns down leisure activities and sports events in order to do his duty at Angel Food. The adults involved have taken him under their wings and are instilling in an already amazing young man what it means to serve others with joy, compassion and unconditional love. He calls his fellow Angel Food workers his adult friends!
