Calvary Assembly of God Christmas Food Pantry 2011
By Derron Reed
Nearly 8000 pounds of food (4 tons) was shipped in to Calvary Assem-
bly of God’s food Pantry which serves about 230 families. The food was
unloaded Dec. 15th and distributed from 9-10 am on Sat. Dec. 17th. in
time for the holidays. About 25 volunteers helped with the unloading,
set up and distribution of the food.
The sale of T-Shirts that were designed by Diane McGraw, a member of Lakeside Church, and printed at Quali-T
Screening in Luxemburg raised $442 and was presented to Pastor Tyler. Lakeside and Calvary have partnered in
serving the community since April of 2011. Volunteers sold the T-shirts as part of a community service project.
