bcmPEACE values collaboration with other organizations near and far as we advocate on behalf of our neighbors here in Allison Hill! We have partnered with amazing organizations such as Power to the Hill who foster community engagement and voter education; the Journey Church who are essential to providing children a safe and accessible place to continue virtual school during this time; Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, and many others that range from healthcare, to schools, to churches. We collaborate not because we simply can and it makes things easier on us – but because it is best for the betterment of the community and our brothers and sisters who live in it.
This week we are focusing our Giving Tuesday Campaign on our Wellness Hub! The Wellness Hub is also known as our Food Distribution but it is so much more. We provide wellness in all senses. Prior to COVID, we help bible study and worship, we had nurses come to check blood pressure, and businesses and organizations to share helpful information with the community. Now things are different, but our mission stays the same. We still serve on average 160 households each Friday and connect them with resources and opportunities that is more than just fresh produce, meat, eggs, milk and other items.
To celebrate the work of this program and to help engage our community collaborators and hopefully raise money, we will be hosting a Trivia Night for our Fun Friday Event! Gather up your group or organization, sign up your team, and register for the event!
