HOW CAN YOU MAKE AN IMPACT?
The food pantry at the Healing Center named “The Marketplace” provides more than four hundred families each week the opportunity to select from a wide variety of food items.
From fresh produce and dairy to meat selections and pantry staples. The products offered at the Marketplace come from individuals, groups, the FreeStore Foodbank, and retailers like Kroger, Target and Costco.
The food provided through the Marketplace creates margin in people’s lives to help households move out of crisis and begin to Thrive.
A financial gift to the Healing Center can help fund the staff, resources, and tools needed to support the store operations. You can become part of the mission of the Healing Center by making a tax-deductible financial gift.
A donation of pantry items can be donated in the drop box located around the back of the Healing Center or placed in the wooden bins located around the church building. Please email Ryan Zoz, our Warehouse Manager, for large donations or corporate food donations.
Tax Deductible Gift
Each day from Tuesday to Saturday the Healing Center is open either preparing or distributing food to our guests and we need many volunteers to make the operations of the Marketplace possible. Roles include both guest facing in the store as well as preparation work in the back getting items ready to go in the stores.
This is a great place for groups to serve. Your small group, a service learning project from a school, or work give back service day can be accommodated in our warehouse. We also have a monthly warehouse work day for volunteers to come and help.
There are so many needs to make the Warehouse store function we need many volunteers just like you to sort, setup, organize, and facilitate the operations of the Marketplace. There are serving opportunities for individuals and groups to support the Wearhouse. Become a part of our team please click here to notify our volunteer support staff and they will contact you with the next steps.
