As partners with the Huntsville Assistance Program, we have been made aware of the desperate need for canned items to fill their pantries. There are three pantries, one in Huntsville, one in Madison and one in Toney. Due to children being out of school for the summer, there has been more of a need for their church partners to help.
Specific requested needs are:
- Canned fruit
- Pork and Beans
- Pinto beans
- Large canned tomatoes
- and any vegetable (other than corn and green beans).
Our goal is to collect 200 cans.
Boxes will be located in the gym and children's lobbies for items to be collected from July 14th through July 22nd.
Please feel free to involve your family and pray over this endeavor. Our church family has such a benevolent heart and follows up with generosity. May God bless each of you and know this food will be a blessing to struggling working families. And to God be the glory!
There is also an opportunity for our members to volunteer at one of the three locations. Gayla Kidd will conduct training on Saturday, July 27th from 10am to 11:30 am. If you are interested in training on how to do the interviews, praying over families who come in, or stocking the shelves, they need you. The address for the training is 1001 Monroe Street. S.W. Huntsville Alabama 35801. It is located by the Huntsville Public Library.
