COVID Food Relief Project Update: December 2020

Dec 1, 2020 | COVID, Justice, News

Blessed by the generosity of our community, East Shore was able to meet our goal and spark the COVID Food Relief Project during the week of Thanksgiving, a time marked by bounty and abundance, but also by disparity and inequity. Through this project, East Shore connects to the local Eastside community and allows us an opportunity to live out our mission in the world, making a mark on our own hearts and those of our neighbors. Our mission is to practice love, build community, promote justice, and explore spirituality. And that’s just what this does. We look forward to continuing this good work with you all and growing together in faith.

Starting Tuesday November 24th, East Shore will be sending five weekly grocery bags, on Tuesdays, of non-perishables and hygiene items, to Jubilee Reach Groceries for Families Programs. Jubilee Reach, a distribution site just two miles from East Shore, sends 700 of these bags out each week. Our participation in this program allows Jubilee to add more families, as new ones are arriving daily seeking food assistance. To start, we’ll be using delivery from a local grocery store to bring the items. In December, we’ll set up volunteer opportunities, so that you can get engaged in the hands on service that changes lives. The first one can be found here.
