Supporting Meals on Wheels

by | May 1, 2020 | Opportunities

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, there are number of vulnerable populations who are facing health and economic crises. This makes the work of our community organizations more important than ever, and we want to show them our support.

Since the beginning of the shelter-in-place orders, Christ Fellowship has been supporting different local organizations each week. For the week of May 3-9, we are honored to be partnering with Meals on Wheels.
