Local Businesses and Health Care Facilities
One way to help both local businesses and health care providers at the same time is to provide a meal from a local business to a health care facility: to offer a meal specifically to those who care for others. Such a gesture can assist a staff at Morning Pointe or Homeview, for example. Contact Pastor Andy directly to offer support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
