COVID-19 Relief

We Know You Want to Help!

And we are working to find safe, practical ways for you and your family to serve during this time of need.
 

Our team has been so blessed by the response of our church families who are seeking opportunities to help others who are struggling as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have partnered with Madison County School District to supplement a daily feeding program for students and their families. On Friday's our church will be stationed at East Flora Elementary and Camden Elementary to distribute snacks and meal supplements to sustain families during the weekends. There are THREE different opportunities for individuals, families, or LifeGroups to serve.

Our deacons have issued the challenge of packing 3,000 bags by the end of this month. These bags will go to feed families at Camden Elementary and East Flora. We are a little over halfway there with 1,800 bags so far. Won't you join them in the challenge?!? Donate food, pack bags, and help deliver them. You can find the specifics about each opportunity listed below.


Purchasing Supplies

It takes an enormous amount of supplies to prepare enough bags for all of the families in need.  One of our greatest needs and the biggest ways you can help is by purchasing the supplies that go into each bag. We are looking for BULK PRE-PACKAGED NON-PERISHABLE ITEMS. Examples of this include, but are not limited to nabs, granola bars, cheez-its, fruit snacks, raisins, oatmeal, grits, pop-tarts, applesauce, etc.. 

Rather than make a special trip to the grocery store to provide donations to these efforts, simply make a point to add the requested items to your shopping list the next time you go to the grocery store. Drop the items off at the Faith entrance on your way home.  You can also go to major online retailers such as Walmart.com, SAMS.com, and Amazon.com to order items online and have them shipped directly to Broadmoor.  

We ask that people drop supplies off at the Faith entrance of the building. There will be boxes located just inside the entrance where you can leave your items. Please park underneath the covered awning at the Faith entrance. If you see there is another car in the same area dropping off supplies, we ask that you wait until they have returned to their vehicle before you get out of your vehicle and enter the building.  We want to do everything within our power to practice safe social distancing.

Supplies can be dropped off anytime between 8am-5pm, Monday-Thursday.
