Bags of Hugs

Description

Adventists in Action is committed to helping the neediest among the Champaign-Urbana area community. Bags of Hugs is a ministry where we visit low-income communities on Saturday afternoons to bring bag lunches and fellowship with the residents. We would love your help, whether it is in terms of time preparing and delivering the lunches, or in donations of funds to cover the cost of the meals. Let us know what you would like to do! God bless!

Our next visit will be to the Skelton Place low-income community on Saturday October 29. We meet at Park Avenue SDA Church at 2 PM to make sandwiches and bag lunches for the residents. Then at 3 PM we will carpool over to Skelton Place to deliver the meals and spend time with the residents. 

Final Date: 

Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 2:00pm
