On Saturday September 7th, JPB staff volunteered at Neighborhood Needs at the Altamesa Church of Christ. This food pantry provides both perishable and non-perishable food items to families and to individuals each month. The food distributed has been provided by the Tarrant Area Food Bank which receives donations both from local grocery stores and from area food drives. Our volunteers served as greeters and registration assistants and also helped with restocking shelves, sacking groceries and carrying groceries to vehicles.
Neighborhood Needs’ mission is to provide food, clothing, technology access and mentoring/counseling to those in need. They work in conglomeration with the Altamesa Church of Christ, Life Church, St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, Genesis United Methodist Church, Southwest Christian Church, Christ Lutheran Church, Trinity Chapel, Hulen Street Church, Christ United Methodist Church, Hallmark Baptist Church, Southwest Christian School and Pregnancy Lifeline.
Thank you to all of our participating staff; we appreciate you and your big hearts!
