Our Loaves and Fishes ministry began over twenty years ago when a church member observed that many departing vacationers on Isle of Palms had food leftover that could not be taken home with them and might be wasted. A mission program was born using volunteers to collect and donate this food for the hungry in our East Cooper community. Loaves and Fishes continues annually, thanks to the wonderful support of volunteers just like you. Each year, the Loaves and Fishes program collects over 1,000 lbs. of food!
Our Loaves and Fishes food collection program finished up July 25 with collections of over 600 pounds of food donations over four weeks. Thanks to all of the youth volunteers who cheerfully sat in the heat and rain to help collect food donations from departing island visitors on Saturday mornings, to those who delivered the donations to East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO), and those who helped get the word out. The donation of your time and efforts make this important ministry possible - thank you!
CHARLESTON WESLEY FOUNDATION
The Charleston Wesley Foundation is blessed with the mission of growing believers and disciples of Christ. In doing so, we create a community of students that share the love of Christ with each other, with their college campuses, and with the world beyond. Our weekly meetings with our various campuses allow us to create strong communities of college aged believers who support and nurture each other in both our large and small group settings.
Our local college outreach program supporting 600+ Methodist students, is in need of bottled beverages (water/lemonade/soda) and laundry pods. Drop off items to the church office and contact Gerald Robertson for more information.
