Berean Christian Church to pass out 1200 Food Boxes to needy families

Stone Mountain, GA--  (Submitted by Beream Christian Church)    

The holiday season is upon us and Berean Christian Church, in partnership with local churches, businesses and families, is planning to show families in need just how much the community cares.  The goal is to demonstrate godly love by providing 2,010 families with food boxes for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. 

This effort began with the distribution of 1,200 boxes of food for Thanksgiving under the leadership of Senior Pastor Kerwin B. Lee.  Families are being selected from DeKalb, Gwinnett and Rockdale counties and will be served at both our DeKalb County (2201 Young Road; Stone Mountain, GA) and Gwinnett County (1465 Highpoint Road; Snellville, GA) locations.  With the help of local schools, churches and individual referrals, we are currently accepting applications for the Christmas giveaway—where 800 families will be served—which will take place on Saturday, December 18, 2010.

In addition, community churches and businesses and individual partners have rallied in partnership with Berean in this effort by providing in-kind and/or financial support to help us reach this goal.  As we join together as individuals, families, businesses and churches we can make a big impact on the lives of families in DeKalb, Gwinnett and Rockdale counties. Without partnerships, this program would not be possible.  Some of our partners include:

  • Beulah Missionary Baptist Church
  • Caring Hands, Inc.
  • DeKalb County Office of Neighborhood Empowerment
  • First African Church
  • Goodwill of North Georgia
  • Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church
  • Overcomers Cathedral Tabernacle of Prayer
  • Partnership for Community Action
  • Publix Grocery Stores
  • RBC Bank (USA)
  • Rain Outreach Ministries
  • Raising the Bar International
  • Shepherds House
  • SWIFT Transportation
  • Wal-Mart
  • Local county schools and more!
