WE CARE Ministries Distributes 500 Bags of Groceries
MARTIN (April 21) — WE CARE Ministries bagged and distributed 500 bags of groceries in the WE CARE Parking lot on Tuesday April 21, 5-6:30 p.m. to families who need a little extra help during this time.
“Anyone can be poor for a moment and these circumstances are definitely beyond their control. Families can drive through the parking lot and volunteers will load the groceries in their cars.
This was an opportunity to bring churches of various denominations together working with a common goal of helping our community through a difficult time.
WE CARE received the mayor’s blessing for this project and we will adhere to the guidelines set down by local officials to wear masks, gloves and maintain distance. Volunteers will place the bagged food in recipients’ cars so no one will have to leave their car.
We cannot do this alone! We need volunteers on Tuesday during the day to help pack the 500 bags from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and volunteers to work the drive through and load the groceries from 4:30 p.m.-7 p.m.
McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Sonic and Dairy Queen worked with WE CARE to have ice cream vouchers for children of the families. Ruler brought in WE CARE’s monthly truckload of food that was purchased with a lot of extras to give away.
“We know how difficult it can be when paychecks are not coming in. We encourage any in our community that are struggling to provide food for their families to come through the drive through. Many elderly in our community struggle every day and often have to choose between food and medicine. We want these people to be here to receive a little extra help,” said a WE CARE news release.
“This is something we want to do for our community to show them that they are not alone- we care about this community and want to do our part as the hands and feet of Jesus to show our love and concern and to give all glory to God for the blessings that He provides. We can’t solve all the problems of the world but we are willing to do our part so that families have food on the table.”
