Inner City Winter Relief

(I wrote about this earlier in the week, but I wanted to remind everyone of the need we have at the Inner City.)

Our Inner City pantry is empty. The shelves are bare – clothing racks have been depleted – and hurting people in our community are literally standing in line for assistance…will you help?

Winter is always a difficult season for the impoverished and homeless in our communities. This Sunday at Mayfair, we’ll be hosting an Inner City Winter Relief drive to help alleviate some of the physical needs of our fellow Huntsvillians. We have a very tangible opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who need the caring touch of God’s people.

We’re asking people to come Sunday prepared to give. We’re asking for donations of canned goods and warm winter clothing. We’re also asking that you consider participating in a special collection of funds to help meet the ongoing needs of the poor in our community.

We have an urgent need for the following:

  • Adult Winter Clothing – coats, sweaters, gloves, etc.
  • Canned goods – vegetables, meat, etc.
  • Dry goods – flour, rice, beans, oil, etc.
  • Liquid Laundry Detergent & Fabric Softener

More than anything else, our Inner City ministry needs your prayers. Lives are being touched and changed every day as a result of this ministry. Winter is the most difficult season and the opportunities are great. Thanks in advance for your help in this hour of need.

    Meeting people’s needs is always a challenge. But I’m thankful that we worship with a group of people who are always responsive to needs like this.
