For Giving Tuesday, we at East Grand Community Services are launching a Holiday Food Drive!
We plan to provide each of the families we serve at our Before & After School Program and our Wednesday Virtual Learning Program with food for the Christmas holiday!
COVID-19 has been an extremely difficult year for all of us but especially for these young families who have lost jobs and have had to pay extra for child care with schools being virtual or closed. We have seen the stress that these families are under as they are trying to manage life in a pandemic on top of taking care of their children.
Would you help us ease the financial burden for these families by donating non-perishable food items over the next 3 weeks? Any groceries may be brought to East Grand Church of Christ (2220 E. Grand St. Springfield, MO 65804) at any time between 7:30 am and 5:30 pm Monday - Friday up until Friday, December 18th.
Or would you prefer to simply donate? You can donate securely online below! All funds will help us purchase a ham for each family, with 39 families, we have estimated this will cost us around $725. Any additional funds raised will allow us to purchase additional groceries for our families.
We are so excited for this Holiday Food Drive and are certain it will be a great blessing to the families we are serving! Please join us in blessing these wonderful, young families in our Oak Grove neighborhood!
