Christan Hope Resource Center

This summer TaylorFrankie is teaming up with Journey Fellowship Youth and we are taking on the City of San Antonio one Thursday at a time! 
Every Thursday during the summer we will be doing a different project in our community. This will be a great way to see the needs that our city has and to lovingly serve our brothers and sisters!
This morning we all met up at Christan Hope Resource Center...
CHRC is a non-profit organization that helps "meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the poor in San Antonio, while promoting Christian community values, affirming individual worth, and standing up for what is right." They partner with the SA Food Bank and local farmers and grocers to provide food assistance and they also offer clothing assistance, health services, education and Bible classes, mentoring, and parenting programs. They currently serve 5,000 families a month with their food assistance. Our jobs today involved unpacking palattes of each food, transferring them to the assembly line, and filling bags/boxes of assorted foods to be picked up by families that need them. At the end of our morning we completed 300 boxes (7 palletes). 

It was hard work but we were glad to serve those in need! Thank you CHRC for your work, we were happy to serve alongside you today!
