Our opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community

Partnering together

We are blown away each year by the generosity of our church, as we come together to give our time and donations to meet the needs of hundreds of people in our community. Gently used clothing and household goods are collected, and food hampers are donated. Many volunteers come to serve over the course of the week leading up to and on the day of the actual event.

This year was a record for us, but this is more than a just an event or a bunch of statistics, it is a real way we can be the hands and feet and Jesus to others!
