Greetings in Jesus,
I am writing to request your consideration of doing a food drive with your church for the Freedom Center Food Pantry as this ministry continues to grow.
Your donation will assist us in outreach to the community. We have become an integral part of our community, already serving well over two hundred families every Wednesday evening. The Gospel is clearly proclaimed, thousands of bibles have been given out and many people have put their faith in Christ Jesus already.
In the first 3 months of this year we have helped over 3,600 individuals. That’s up over 120% from last year.
Presently, we receive food primarily from Feeding America out of Omro. Various food items can be purchased for about 19 cents per pound. We are currently going through about 5,000 pounds per week. Over the last couple months the selections have been slim and we do not have much verity to offer our pantry guests. This is where church food drives would be very helpful, to fill in much needed items we haven’t been able to purchase, such as:
Boxed foods (Macaroni and Cheese, Hamburger Helper, etc.)
This ministry has grown much quicker than expected and God continues to provide and send laborers, and it is my prayer that He continues to do according to His good pleasure. I believe a part of His desire is for the church to come together in unity to help the poor.
Thank you for your consideration of these requests, and please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
