OneLife church has committed to donating 10 bags of food to the Orangevale Food Bank every month.
Specially designed bags are available in the church lobby every Sunday. Just grab one (or two...), fill them up, and bring them back. OneLife Church will take care of the logistics.
The following was taken from the Orangevale Food Bank website:
We exist to share God’s love in our community by providing food, resources and hope to families in need.
As an organization, we make a positive impact in the communities of Orangevale and Fair Oaks by providing food, resources and hope to families in need. We also strive to facilitate participation from people within our community to help improve the lives of families in need through community outreach events, volunteering, food drives, and connecting people through a common purpose.
Orangevale Food Bank was formed by several members of the community in Orangevale working diligently to lay the groundwork for a local food bank and family resource center. In our current economy, several hundred families struggle each month to provide basic food for their families. The Orangevale Food bank rallies the community behind these families to help them during these difficult times. The Orangevale Food Bank exists to bridge the gap for those families, and provide assistance temporarily while they work toward meeting these needs in their own.
For I was hungry
and you gave Me something to eat;
I was thirsty
and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger and you took Me in;
I was naked and you clothed Me;
I was sick and you took care of Me;
I was in prison and you visited Me.’
Matthew 25:35-40 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
