DO GOOD - SMASH HUNGER! 

It's time to DO GOOD! This week we need you to RALLY your neighbors together to SMASH HUNGER for the Hub! Ask your friends and neighbors to join you. The Hub is a nonprofit organization that is on a mission to give everyone in our city access to a restored life. The Lovewell Center is part of the Hub and is a day shelter for people experiencing poverty and those needing access to immediate physical resources such as FOOD. Right now, the Hub is collecting non perishable food items to stock their shelves of their food pantry called The EATWELL.  The Eatwell is where dozens of Lovewell members "shop" for groceries every single week.  There is a HUGE need in our community for people who do not have access to filling, nutritious food. Bring your filled Rally Box back to church next Sunday or drop off at our office.
