Heart 4 Holmes enters final three food donation days
HOLMES COUNTY - Heart 4 Holmes is a ministry sponsored by New Smyrna Assembly of God that was created to assist our community with various needs.
Feeding the Gulf Coast supplies 5,000 pounds of groceries to the program for distribution to Holmes County’s residents from 9-11 a.m. at New Smyrna Assembly, located at 1849 Adolph Whitaker Road, Bonifay.
The final food events will be held on November 20, December 4 and December 18.
We have been receiving 5,000 pounds of groceries but these last three we will have 10,000 pounds!! This was just approved by the Holmes county Board of County Commissioner's.
Due to this grant being funded for Holmes County specifically, one of the requirements to receive food is that you must be a Holmes County resident. One representative from each household is required to be present at the time of pick-up and produce one form of proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, identification card or utility bill with an address listed. In circumstances where a family is in need but a representative is unable to come to the church, please contact Heart 4 Holmes Coordinator Joelle Morris prior to the day of the distribution so that alternate arrangements may be made.
While specific grocery items vary from week to week, the products always offer protein, fresh produce, dry goods, bread and desserts.
Please note that the official hours are 9-11; however, it is a good idea to arrive in advance as the line usually begins forming around 8:30 and all food is typically dispersed within one hour of that start time.
If you would like to volunteer with Heart 4 Holmes or have questions regarding anything relating to the program or distribution, please contact Joelle at 850-758-2076 or call the church at 850-547-9559. We would love for you to join us in reaching out to our community by offering your time! Hours for volunteers are 7-11
Thank you so much for this opportunity to love on our community in a big way! We look forward to seeing you!
