On September 29, 2023 an Action Team application was submitted to Thrivent for "Help Feed the Northeast." This was approved immediately, and the project was started.
This was a cooperative effort between members of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church and the associates of TOPS Market #202 (Union Rd. at George Urban Blvd, Cheektowaga), and strongly promoted by Camille Cottrell, Store Manager.
The recipient of our hunger project was the Seneca Street United Methodist Church, which is located in a highly impoverished area of Buffalo. Although they do not operate a Food Bank, the church provides Emergency Supplies to those in need, including the homeless, until they can access services of the local Food Bank.
The project began with a list of critical items that was provided by the Pastor and volunteers at the Seneca Street United Methodist Church. IN TOTAL, MORE THAN 1600 ITEMS WERE COLLECTED (plus many reuseable bags).
"Help Feed the Northeast" Action Team was completed on Wednesday, October 25, 2023. Prayerfully, it qualifies for an additional $500.00.
Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to help our neighbors in need!
