Carmel Valley church to hold food packing event to feed the homeless
Grace Point Church has partnered with Friends & Family Community Connection to help feed hungry children in Honduras through a “Faith In Action Sunday” event on April 29.
During the months of March and April, Grace Point Church will be collecting donations from church members, the local community and corporate partners, to cover the $37,500 cost of the raw materials for the meals. At the event, volunteers will package 150,000 meals that will be sent to Honduras to feed children in the poorest barrios of San Pedro Sula.
On April 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., church members will work alongside members of the local community to package the food.
“Our surrounding communities coming together to help those less fortunate is what makes this service project so special.” shared Bob Johnson, pastor of Grace Point Church. “Serving together on April 29 allows us to show how grateful we are for all we have and to pay it forward in a tangible way to families and children in Honduras that are in great need.”
Grace Point Church is located in Carmel Valley. Grace Point Church is located at 13340 Hayford Way, San Diego, CA 92130; 858-481-0424; www.gracepointsd.com.
