Seeing the Need

social change

What do you do when you see a need in your community?

North Shore Christian Church has been quietly serving the hungry on Long Island. In their area, no soup kitchens stay open the entire year. So a team of volunteers committed to make bag lunches for people who need food, including sandwiches, juice and snacks.

Every Saturday, they hand out between 90-120 lunches. Pastor Kristin Halpin explains, "Our motto is anyone who asks for a sandwich gets one." Over the course of many months, they have gained trust and built rapport with many in their community.  Local businesses now donate portions and the congregation purchases the rest to complete a small meal.

Thank you for serving so diligently, North Shore! You make visible the love of Christ on Long Island.
