On Saturday, December 26, members of the CUMC English congregation braved the elements and distributed food and clothing to the local residents of Jackson Heights. The morning started with a scare as 50 whole chickens which were being stored in the church freezer had thawed out because of a malfunction with the freezer. But because of the outpouring of donations to purchase food, we were able to purchase fifty $10 gift cards to Food Town and people who received the canned goods and gift cards were extremely grateful. The distribution would not have been possible without the generous donations of food, finances, and clothing from so many congregants! We continue to pray for the many families who are struggling with basic necessities and hope that we can continue to provide for peoples’ needs through the power and grace of Christ.
