Jesus Was Homeless

This week, November 14-20, is Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.


We surpassed the 17,000 meals served mark so far in 2010 and received the ULTIMATE compliment this past week.  We were told that we were the "best thing since canned beer!"  We could never achieve anything without being directed by God and having your support, so THANK YOU.

As we go through the week please remember there are people RIGHT HERE in our own community that are hungry and homeless.  There are many ways to help needy individuals and families living in our community.

Here are just some of the ways you can help.
  • Raise and donate money to your school district's community fund.
  • Organize a food drive.
  • Purchase and donate grocery and gasoline gift certificates.
  • Donate new clothing to someone in need. 
  • Help sort and organize in a food pantry or clothing closet.
  • Donate backpacks and school supplies.  
  • Organize a drive for personal hygiene items.
  • Provide baby items and diapers.
  • Help with fund raising.
  • Donate specialized services to low-income clients.

14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.  For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. - Colossians 3:14-15 (NLT)
