Summary: Local Church Partnering with International Disaster Emergency Service for Food Packing Event, G.A.P. (God Always ProvIDES)
Details: Bridgetown Church of Christ, a local Westside community church, will be partnering with the mission organization International Disaster Emergency Service (IDES) on Saturday, November 23, 2013 for a “G.A.P.” event from 10:00am to 1:00pm at 4418 Bridgetown Road (Pilgrim United Church of Christ). G.A.P. (God Always ProvIDES) is a volunteer food packing program that helps the poor in Haiti and Africa as well as other places in times of disaster. Meals of rice, soy, veggies, and supplements will be packed by volunteers. The meals are then stored with IDES in Indianapolis until a disaster hits or there are enough packaged meals to fill a shipping container. The meals are shipped to Haiti, Africa, and other places to be used as dietary supplement meals. However, during times of disaster they are frequently the only meal individuals receive. Bridgetown Church of Christ (BCC) has a goal of packing 13,000 meals! Check out www.ides.org for more information on the G.A.P. program and other efforts of this organization. BCC would like to see as many people as possible get involved with this event. Volunteers should come from 10:00am to 1:00pm and BCC will provide lunch for everyone (you may even get to try some of the supplement meals that we will pack). **The event will be held at Pilgrim United Church of Christ, 4418 Bridgetown Road, because the BCC building is under construction. Many thanks to those at Pilgrim United Church of Christ for sharing their space for this event.
