Host a Food Drive
Have you ever been in the position where you so desire pancakes but can’t afford the mix or the syrup? Have you ever thought “donuts would be a nice treat today,” and they appeared at your front door? Have you been close to running out of laundry detergent trying to stretch every last drop until you had enough spare change to purchase some… and then God provides unexpectedly? All these scenarios happened to one of our food recipients and through the efforts of community, God provides for hundreds of similar stories in the lives of other precious families.
Grace Klein Community is so thankful to each and every family, business, church, sports team and/or home-school co-op who graciously offer to host food drives in support of our monthly food delivery ministry.

Have you been thinking about ways that you could get involved in the community of Birmingham? Or ways to engage your child’s club/sports team in a service project? You can host a food drive in your neighborhood! Email us with a date/month for your planned food drive and we can supply you with a sample flyer (see below) that can be edited and distributed throughout your neighborhood. If you have other creative ways of collecting various food items to support the monthly food delivery ministry, be sure to let us know. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our monthly food delivery ministry is a great way to get involved in the community of Birmingham, Alabama. Our volunteers go out once a month, all over Birmingham, to deliver food boxes to families in need of food. But, it’s about so much more than food… we seek to build relationships with people and walk through hard times with them. We wholeheartedly believe that meaningful, long-term relationships are a key factor in alleviating poverty.
