Upcoming Outreach Events at Christ UMC

OneGeneration Away Food Drop

Habitat for Humanity

In partnership with One Generation Away, Christ UMC is sponsoring a Mobile Food Pantry on June 18 at Centennial High School.  50+ Christ UMC volunteers are needed that Saturday morning from 7:30 – 10:00 am to help give away 30,000 pounds of food to our neighbors in need.

 

OneGenAway seeks to rescue high-quality food from grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, and farms before it goes to waste. That food is then given to our neighbors in need.  Their goal is to eliminate food insecurity by bringing healthy food to people in need.

 

OneGenAway accomplishes this by partnering with local agencies to bring food to places of need and by operating a mobile food pantry every Saturday with the help of volunteers. At these food distributions, anyone can come and receive food, no questions asked.

 

Christ UMC is partnering with OneGenAway by providing $5,000 to support a mobile food pantry day and enough volunteers to unload, sort and distribute 30,000 pounds of food on June 18.  Sign up in the Narthex Sunday.
