Thanksgiving Outreach at GraceLife Food Pantry

6 days ago

Grace Community Church has some wonderful community partners here in Sarasota that share our desire to reach the unchurched and share the love of Jesus with our neighbors. 

We have been partnering with GraceLife Food Pantry on a regular basis providing resources, finances, and extra hands to help them feed those who otherwise would go without food. 

We had the great opportunity to partner with GraceLife in a special way on November 18th to provide thanksgiving meals to so many families in our community. Some wonderful volunteers from Grace Community Church were intentional neighbors and helped get everything ready and passed out the food. 

Lisa Keay, the GraceLife Food Pantry Coordinator, was so blessed and encouraged to have extra hands from Grace Community Church to help! She sent us an email bragging on all of YOU! Here is what she had to say:

“Grace Community Church's volunteer turnout was just amazing! They were truly clothed with kindness, compassion, gentleness and patience! A true reflection of our Lord!! A beautiful example of what really being intentional is all about.

Thank you as well for providing the resources to purchase side dishes! So you may know and share with those who participated, we served 384 families yesterday. Thanks to you, and God’s provisions, 802 people will have Thanksgiving Dinner. So very grateful for all of you! Please pray for these families over the holiday season! And may you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!”
