For over 50 years, one of the outreach ministries of this church has been providing a “Christmas food box” with all the ingredients for a nice Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and extra food to last about a week.Christmas gifts for the children 12 and under in each family are donated by Lucky2Serve, a non-profit organization out of North Plains, OR. https://www.facebook.com/lucky2serve
It is difficult to describe the blessings YOU receive while participating in this outreach. It could be as simple as a smile, a hug from a friend or stranger, and a chance to meet some of our community members as we work side by side filling the boxes with canned foods, produce, turkey and more.
Funding for those foods comes from outside donations, purchases from the Oregon Food Bank, and donated turkeys. We recycle water/pop cans and bottles and that money goes to help with the purchase of food. We also have a “Food of the Month” collection and those items add to our food supply.
