Local Churches Gather Food For Area Hungry
Sunday's collection was one in which about 30 McHenry County churches banded together this month under the rubric Christ Together to collect food and financial donations for the area's hungry. The donations at FCC will be trucked to Aurora this morning where NIFB will distributed them to area food banks. "Some of it might be coming back here," FCC volunteer Geoff Gentry observed ironically.
Area churches contributing to Sunday's drive included:
Faith Community Church, Huntley
Springbrook Community, Huntley
Willow Creek, Huntley
The Well, Huntley
Westlake Community Church, Huntley
Immanuel Lutheran, Crystal Lake
Willow Creek Community Church, Crystal Lake
Harvest Bible Chapel, Crystal Lake
Trinity Baptist Community Church, Crystal Lake
Vineyard Christian Church, Crystal Lake
Christian Fellowship, Crystal Lake
Crosspoint Lutheran Church, Lakewood
Faith Community Church Food Pantry helps about 200 members and non-members on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
