Church gives away Christmas items for families in need

Updated:

A Christmas giveaway for families in need this holiday season.  Yesterday, the congregation at Flag Life Church in Pittsburg welcomes families in need of support.  The church supplied can goods, bread, potatoes, fresh fruit, and many more items.  

One mother says the event will allow her to purchase more gifts for her children for Christmas.

"It's just like Wow!  Clothing was offered this year, and it's like wow!   I can provide that for my girls and wrap them up under the tree.  It was just amazing," says Stacey Day, a mother.

 


The holiday packages included flour, bread, various can goods , potatoes, meat and the list goes on. 

Church members believe it's their  mission to support their community. 

"We have 80% of the kids that go to our school on some kind of meal plan, which is scary we have 80% of our kids needing food on a daily bases," said Outreach Pastor Anthony Navarathnam. 

Earlier this year a fair was held at Pittsburg's Westside Elementary School. 
Clothing, food,  and free hair cuts were provided by the church.

 Navarathnam says, "They [church members]  have a heart of serving, a heart of giving which is awesome, and they want to be a part of this as much as all of us do and were just wanting to meet one big need out there."

"I have no doubt they will be here for me and my family and for the community. Its just been amazing the outpouring support that's been here," said Day.

Members say its their way of showing Gods love.

Members of the church, local food banks, and the disaster response group Conway of Hope supplies the items.  The church has more plans of outreach in the future.
