Provide Meals for Needy Families
Dear Partner in Christ,
In 1998 Michele and David Blackwell started the Community Outreach of Boynton Beach after the Lord placed this ministry on Michele's heart. The outreach started with about 30 families being served each week. A message was given and then groceries handed out. As part of the ministry, Dave and Michele brought several people from the outreach to church on Sunday mornings. At the height of this ministry, approximately 80 families were being served each week. Several families have been coming to the outreach since its inception! Lula is one of those families. Lula says she likes the outreach because the food is helpful and the speakers are good." She also says her granddaughter (Leila) "gets a thrill out of coming. She loves Dawn and asks about her every week. Everyone gets enough food to take home with them." Lula's granddaughter, Leila, has been coming to the outreach since she was an infant! She is now nine years old and visits the outreach with Lula when school is out.
In 2007, Dave & Michele moved to northern Florida. Since then, Dawn Terrizzi and I have continued the outreach, as one of the ministries of this mission.
We still meet every Thursday afternoon, reaching those who come in with a message of hope. Most of those who attend are elderly and/or widowed. There are also single parents and those struggling to make ends meet in this increasingly tight economy. This outreach has been active for approximately eleven years.
For many years, Publix (through Palm Beach Harvest) supplied us with meat, produce, dairy and other staples for the outreach. That ceased in 2006 and since then we receive only bread and dessert items from Publix. While that is still a blessing, it produces a real hardship in serving those in need within our community.
As we strive to continue our efforts in assisting those that are in need within our community, we ask that you prayerfully consider donating non-perishable groceries or, as the Lord leads, a monetary donation to help sustain this God inspired ministry. Additionally, we are always looking for helpers every Thursday afternoon! If you are free from 4PM-5:30 PM, and would like to help out, please contact us (561-577-3725) for more information.
Pray for the following needs:
- Can & Dry Goods
- Assorted used clothing, household utensils and other staples
- Monetary donations to purchase meat and other needed food
