At New Life Fellowship we believe that we need to do 3 things. Grow in God, Grow with Others, and Touch our World. As a way to touch the world around us in East Mckeesport we started Project 500. This is where we go around our community on a Sunday morning and drop off paper bags to be filled with non-perishable items. The next week we pick up the bags that were filled and deliver the to Ma's Pantry a local food bank for the East Mckeesport area. The goal was to fill 500 bags. We have not quit gotten there yet but we sure getting closer!
This year we will have 2 Phases of Project 500 Phase 1 will be July 29th and August 5th. Phase 2 we be in the fall. Date will be determined.
Phase 1 of Project 500 gathered just under 100 bags for Ma's Pantry. They were so appreciative! Thank you to everyone involved whether you were picking up, dropping off, or donating, it could not have been done with out you!
