Partnering with First Baptist Church assisting with vacation bible school six week program, Church in the Park at Hale Park ongoing until October, Bear Creek Church back to school giveaway, and G&M's school supply giveaway on the East Side.
We were able to serve hot nutritional lunches and snacks to students out of school for the summer.In all we served approximately 1800 meals to youth this summer. We continue to assist transitioning adults as well with food, clothing and other necessities for day to day living.
