CARE AMIDST THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

OVER 160,000 BOXES PACKED AND DISTRIBUTED

OVER 3.2 MILLION MEALS SERVED

OVER 5.3 MILLION POUNDS OF FOOD DISTRIBUTED

In the midst of a global pandemic, we want to be a clear picture of God’s love across our city. Therefore, we are coordinating a church-wide effort to provide food and hygiene products to neighbors and communities in need. We have a network of relationships with schools and other churches, and they have shared with us about the need for food for children in light of them not being in school, and for families in light of various challenges at work. As a result, we are working closely with local officials according to CDC guidelines to pack and deliver helpful products to communities across our city. See below for more details and opportunities to get involved.

SERVE

Fill out this Interest Form, and we will reach out to you with opportunities to pack and deliver products.

Please note: We strongly encourage those who are more at-risk in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19), particularly the elderly and those with current medical conditions or compromised immune systems, to stay at home as much as possible during this time. In addition, if you have any symptoms of sickness or have been exposed to anyone who is sick, you are not permitted to be a part of this work. Please stay at home and contact a medical professional, as appropriate. Volunteers must be at least 13 years old. However, children 10-12 may serve at our packing site with parental supervision.
