IMMEDIATE NEED:

SON Ministries:

In a recent survey of the families we served this summer, we learned that there is a GREAT need. Clothes for children. We have received over 55 requests from families asking for our help in this great need and God immediately provided the resource. One of our volunteers took the initiative to collect clothes of all sizes at HER HOME, and she organized boxes of clothes to be delivered to these families. We want to invite you to serve with us by collecting these boxes from her house located in Dublin and deliver them to the families in need.


If you are available on Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening, please send Haifa Lopez, of SON Ministries, an email and she will send you more information.


Mid Ohio Food Collective:

Increased demand for food assistance has led to a renewed need for on-site volunteers. We need your help to meet the need.


 Whether it’s a few hours one day a month or once a week, your contributions of time and energy help us get the right food in the right place and now, especially during these unsettling COVID-19 moments – at the right time.
