Community Combined Ministries/ Kidz Power Pacs
My husband and I were called to serve in El Salvador helping with street ministry, construction and a feeding program. When we returned home in 2005 the Lord continued to stir the need of our community in our hearts. We started talking and working with our area schools and the stories that were shared about hungry children and the things they face on a daily basis was heart breaking. In 2007 we finally started a ministry and reaching out to the community to come together to help feed these children and their families.
Each month the schools would identify children, and their families would come pick up their food boxes that we supplied from a discounted food ministry out of Georgia. As the years passed and the need became greater, the ministry grew. However in February of 2010 our lives personally were turned upside down, as my husband was injured and we found ourselves in the same situation of the families we were serving. The community wrapped their arms around us, fed us and helped us through prayer and services.
Through that love and compassion the Lord’s vision was fully created and Community Combined Ministries was birthed into it’s own non profit 501(c)3. We are serving Berkeley and Jefferson County, serving 29 schools plus headstart schools and feeding over 800 children every week, during breaks and all summer long! We also provide school supplies, hygiene items, food pantry boxes , One Harvest discounted food menus , prayer and hold special events throughout the year for the families and communities. All of this is done through sponsorship, donations, grants and fundraisers.
Ways you can help: pray for ministry and those we serve, join us in sponsoring a child monthly, hold a fundraiser, share about grants we can apply to, help us at our monthly packing’s, save your plastic grocery bags, be a drop off location, hold a food or toy drive. Immediate big needs: Box truck we can use to pick up the food monthly and an office space is needed approx 600 sq ft .
We would love to share with you more about the ministry and can be reached by email: [email protected] or phone 304-268-8778.
