This is a moving shelter for the working homeless of Orange County. The residents of the shelter move about every two weeks to a hosting church, where they stay and receive meals and assistance in locating jobs. Other items needed are: soap, razors, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bathroom tissue, shampoo, conditioner, combs, and brushes. Items can be placed underneath the offering table in the church. For more information, please see Michael Hodges.
We sponsor abused/neglected children and needy families in the Orange County area by providing canned/dry foods, diapers, and hygiene products (soap, shampoo, etc.) to Family Support Network. All donated items go directly to help families that are making positive changes in their lives and the lives of their children. We encourage everyone to participate by bringing any number of the above-mentioned donated items to church on Sunday, presented during the giving of our tithes and offerings.
Pop tabs from canned drinks are collected and given to Children’s Hospital of Orange County who will turn them into cash and donate the amount to the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. After you save your tabs, also remember to save your can to bring in to church for our recycling program!
