Updated: Jun 6, 2019
Yesterday, our partners at the Second Harvest Food Bank named our Benevolence Center the Lake County Agency of the Year! We are so thankful to receive this award, and we give all the glory to the Lord who has made this possible! Our Benevolence Center staff and volunteers team up to help families and individuals both on and off our campus as the Lord transforms so many lives for His glory!
We wanted to share the article with you – here is what it says:
Congratulations to Christian Care Benevolence for being awarded the 2019 Lake County Agency of the Year at the Partner Agency Conference. Here is a little about this amazing agency.
This agency is the largest food pantry in Lake County serving an average of over 2500 individuals each month, giving over 28,000 pounds of food each week to those in need in Lake County.
This program is designed to supply families with five days’ worth of food and eight articles of clothing per family member each month along with other household items free of charge. They have been a Partner Agency since 1999.
They currently pick up at 9 grocery stores in the Lake County Area. They distributed more than 1,500,000 lbs of food into the community in 2018.
They have also become a mentor to many of the smaller or newer pantries in their area and strive to help end hunger in Lake County.
Thank you to Glenn and all the staff and volunteers at Christian Care Benevolence for all you do for those in need in your community.
Once again, we at the Christian Care Center are so grateful to our partners at Second Harvest Food Bank. We thank the Lord for all He is doing in and through our Benevolence Center!
