Once again we’ll be packing, loading and delivering boxes of food to local food pantries and neighborhoods across Michiana. This effort will support approximately 6,000 families and is made possible through the generosity of the people of GCC as part of the Christmas Offering.
This year’s Food Drop will take place entirely outdoors and not inside our buildings, so you will want to dress appropriately for the weather that day. We’ll be kicking things off with an online rally and instructions that you’ll be able to view from your phone, while parked inside your car (Granger Campus), or out in the parking lot in front of the church (Elkhart Campus). View the rally streamed via our Web site, Facebook, YouTube, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire and the Granger Community Church app.
We will be social distancing between family groups and masks and gloves (winter gloves and mittens are fine!) are required to be worn while handling the food and packing boxes that we’ll be distributing across Michiana. After the packing of the food is complete at our campuses, if you’d like to help deliver food to one of the distribution sites, this year you’ll need to sign up ahead of time to do so.
There won’t be donuts or drinks available this year, so we encourage you to stop somewhere afterwards with your family and friends to pick up coffee or lunch and reflect on the event together and support a local business instead.WHERE:
Saturday, January 23, 9 a.m.
As a family activity, print off a few of these coloring sheets and have your kids color and personalize them and pray over them together at home. Bring your colored pages to the Food Drop with you and we will get these inside the boxes we’re packing.
