Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at the Christian Care Center! For many of us, this special day of the year has many different meanings. While some find themselves scurrying around trying to find that perfect gift or card for a loved one, others may find themselves a bit emotional as they reflect on memories with their loved one who is no longer here. Perhaps others are still wondering if they will ever meet “the one” as our culture calls it.
What a blessing it is to know that no matter what today looks like – because of Christ – this day has such a special meaning for all of those who know and love Him because of His amazing love for us! The Bible is filled with so many promises of His love and with instructions on how we as Christians are to show His love to the world around us.
We at the Christian Care Center would like to give you a simple way to celebrate this Valentine’s Day by making a difference for the needy in our community! We would like to invite you to be a part of our Love Your Neighbor Food Drive.
Because of our partnership with Second Harvest Foods, we are able to purchase food for 18 cents per pound!! There are two images below. This first image shows what you can get for $50 at a local grocery store.
This second image shows what we can get at Second Harvest Foods for the same $50! The difference is astounding! Click here to see a short video from Lee Evans, who is the Director of our Benevolence Center.
We are so thankful for the faithful partnership of so many who help with our Benevolence Center! If you would like to take part in our Love Your Neighbor Food Drive, you can make a check out to the Christian Care Center with the phrase “Love Your Neighbor Food Drive” in the memo line and mail it to us at 115 N. 13th Street, Leesburg, FL 34748. If you’d like to give online, click here to visit our website. Once there, you can navigate to “Donate” and then to “Give one time or monthly”. After logging in as a guest, you can then scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will find an option to donate to the Benevolence Center (located under ‘Donation Opportunities’).
Once again, thank you so much and Happy Valentine’s Day!
