There is something coming up at Cornerstone that I am very excited about – FOOD DROP 2012. See the photo above? That is step 1. Come by the church and pick up a cardboard box and a packing list. Fill the box with those items and return it to the church. Step 1 must be completed by January 1.
Step 2 happens on Saturday, January 7. Be at the church at 8:30 am to load up vehicles/trailers with these boxes. Then we will head out to communities identified by the Food Bank of East Alabama to distribute these gifts of food.
I’ve heard of other churches doing things like this but have never really been a part of it. That’s why I can’t wait for January 7! We are hoping to deliver 1,000 of these gifts. That seems like such a big number to me. Seems hard to believe that there could be 1,000 families in the Auburn/Opelika area that can’t afford these basic necessities. But I know the sad truth is that there are many more than 1,000. This is just a drop in the bucket. But every drop counts!
So join me on January 7 in spreading the unconditional love of Jesus Christ to families in our very own community. You don’t have to register. However, if you have a large truck or trailer you’d be willing to share, please let Jonathan Savage know (email@example.com). For more information and a packing list, go to Food Drop 2012. See you there!
