Friday, April 17 at 4:45 p.m. - Southeast Christian Church’s campuses will be hosting an urgent needs food drive from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 24 and Monday, April 27.
Area food banks continue to face shortages due to an increase in need but a decrease in donations because of economic repercussions from the COVID-19 pandemic. Southeast is asking its members, along with the general public, to donate in-date, non-perishable food items.
Food items needed include:
- Peanut butter
- Pasta and pasta sauce
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned meat
- Canned Vegetables and fruit
- Dry breakfast items
- Any other in-date, non-perishable foods
In an effort to follow social distancing guidelines, donors will remain in their vehicles. After following directional signs to the donation drop-off point, drivers will pop open the trunk of their vehicle. A volunteer wearing gloves will remove the food items, place a donation receipt inside, and close the trunk.
A prayer card also will be placed inside the trunk, as Southeast is encouraging prayer for healthcare workers, community leaders, residents and staff at nursing homes, and others affected by the coronavirus pandemic. On the back of the prayer card will be a guide for praying through Psalm 23.
In addition, donors with prayer requests will be given the opportunity to pray with volunteers. Those needing prayer also may text PRAYER to 733733.
Please Note: If you or someone in your home is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, cough, and shortness of breath), we ask that you keep your food items for personal use.
