Will you answer the call?
Christmas and the holiday season is approaching, and there’s so much for which many of us can be thankful: food, shelter, friends, family and faith. We have a growing number of neighbors among us who don’t have all of these blessings: the US Department of Housing and Urban Development released a report last week showing Washington’s homeless population has increased 7.3 percent this year, now totaling tens of thousands. In addition to the homeless, growing numbers of families, even those with housing, are struggling with lack of food. Will you support God’s Portion in our ministry to provide food to organizations that serve those in need?
The heroes behind the heroes: God’s Portion volunteers supply organizations directly helping those in need.
By working together, we can help churches, ministries and nonprofits meet the need in our community. God’s Portion volunteers are the heroes behind the heroes, operating a network that provides fresh produce, whole grain bread, meat, fruit, potatoes, snacks and beverages to dozens of organizations feeding the hungry in cities from Tacoma to Kelso and everywhere in between. We provide food to multiple food banks, Cascadia Cares, Set Free, Abundance Food Pantry, Water of Life, the Slavic Christian Center of Tacoma and many other organizations actively engaged in distributing meals and food to those who need it.
We can’t do this without your help. This time of the year, no child should be hungry, and no family should be without the witness provided by the faithful ministry of the church.
Your gift of $5, $10 or $50 will make a huge difference to God’s Portion. Your donation of just $5 will provide 8 lbs of healthy food to a family in need. Your donation of $10 will allow us to purchase enough fuel to get a truck from our fleet 30 miles down the road and closer to home with nutritious food on board. And your donation of $50 will help us invest in a new compressor for our freezer, enabling us to distribute protein and perishable foods with even more efficiency, feeding more hungry families.
Please give now. We need your faithful partnership to carry out our mission.
