We are participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, to bring about greater awareness of food insecurity and get more involvement in our services through donations and volunteer support. FHL has participated in #GivingTuesday in the past years with success. Merlin Gonzales, President/CEO of FHL, “is very glad to be involved with the #GivingTuesdayNow program. Our aim is to generate more awareness and support for FHL and other similar organizations. The COVID-19 pandemic posed some challenges, but we are moving forward in spite of it anyway. The drive thru pantry is one way that exemplifies this forward momentum.” “As a global community, we can mourn this moment of extreme crisis while also finding the opportunity to support one another. We each have the power to make an impact with acts of generosity, no matter how small, and to ensure the sustainability of organizations and services that are crucial to the care and support of our communities,” said Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday. “#GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for us to stand united and use grassroots generosity to show that we are all in this together, beginning to end. Even as many face financial uncertainty, generosity is not about size. From calling an elderly neighbor to chat to offering translation help; from showing gratitude to our healthcare workers to donating to your local food bank, every act of kindness is a beacon of hope in this crisis. We all have something to give, and every act of human consideration and kindness matters.” Those interested in Faith Hope Love Community’s #GivingTuesdayNow efforts can visit our website.

As a part of Food Pantry Training, FHL will be opening a food pantry which will operate once a month. FHL will train a food ministry volunteer about what will be involved in the operations of an actual food pantry to help them gain experience.
If you would like to help, we need the following:
- canned goods,
- canned meat
- and non-perishable breakfast items
so we can provide more variety to our clients. Please message us if you are looking to bless the community through this food pantry or if you are looking to be a part of the training.
