Food Needed

This June we will be handling our operation the same as we have been the last few months . We are asking that the food be dropped off between 4:00 and 4:15 so that we can start boxing up by 4:30. We have to keep our number down inside and this only allows two people… See full description

Fast Food Gift Cards for Christmas Stockings

As I look back on pictures and stories from last Christmas it’s been very difficult to know we are unable to celebrate the way we did last year due to COVID 19. We are unable to have the people we care for inside, a beautifully decorated room and live entertainment. The best news is we never missed a day of being able to still care for and provide for those less fortunate and in need of our services. We are so grateful to so many people who continue to help us . Each and everyone of you! While we had to recreate how we did things , you all supported us and helped us figure everything out. ❤️
We are trying to figure out how to celebrate Christmas with them and make it still feel like it’s a celebration while handing them a take out box of food. We’ve been blessed by Sarah Young, the Author of “The Jesus Calling book”, with a wonderful Devotional book for each of them again this year, we are handing out Christmas stockings , filled with treats . Just as last year we would love to be able to add a $5.00 gift card to McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Wendy’s or another fast food restaurant in our area. That would be a gift of a second meal in their day or for Sunday, the only day we are closed. If you would be able to pick up a few to help us with that , we would be very grateful. Merry Christmas and may 2021 bring good health and many Blessings to all. Thank you for all you do in helping us , help those in need.
