Long time volunteer of Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity, Dianne Jones, asked if we would be interested in providing some space for a very special ministry group called “Nothing But the Truth”. During the upcoming school year, she and two other ladies, Diane Soroko and Gail Smith, will be assembling sacks of food to distribute to elementary school children to take home over the weekend. Those children have been identified as being at risk of not having sufficient food over the weekends. The schools this ministry will be serving are Suter Elementary, Arnold Elementary and Lee Street Elementary.
The food, which is all non-perishable and something a child can handle preparing for themselves, is typically donated from the Atlanta Food Bank as well as private donors. There will be a group of 3-5 folks that will come to Southern Crescent Habitat on Friday mornings at 10am during the school year to assemble the food bags. Habitat volunteers and homeowners earning sweat equity will also be able to help.
These same three ladies are doing additional ministry work at Keystone Apartments in Jonesboro over the summer. Every Tuesday afternoon between 4pm & 6pm they take snacks and share Bible stories with the children, do activities with them and hold a Bible study for any parents that are available. This is a sweet group of ladies and Southern Crescent Habitat is very honored that they have reached out to allow us to be a part of their ministry.
