We help those who don’t get enough to eat by donating or cooking food. We also partner with many organizations – at the community, regional and national levels – to put our faith into action, improve life for God’s people everywhere, care for his creation, and bring the Good News of our Jesus Christ to our friends and neighbors.
Send a card to someone who is grieving a death in the family, celebrating a new birth, or healing from surgery or an illness.
