During this time, there are ways to effectively and safely extend our hands in love to our neighbors in need. Each week, the Chronicle will provide upcoming opportunities and a list of other ways to be involved. If you are looking for ways to be involved, please consider these immediate needs of our community:

Mobile Food Pantry Food Distribution – Christ Church, June 5 & 19
Last week, we handed out 10,000 lbs of food to around 200 families. In partnership with Feeding the Gulf Coast, Christ Church will continue to be a food distribution site. Our next two dates will be June 5 and 19 . We are looking for a small team of hardworking people who can work in two shifts that day (sorting and distribution). There will be some labor-intensive jobs (i.e., carrying boxes of food) and other jobs (i.e., people filling out forms for each car). While it is outdoors and we take precautions like masks and gloves, please do not volunteer if you are at a high risk of infection or if you are not feeling well. If you are interested in helping to volunteer with the next effort, please email Honey Harris at .
Summer of Service Update
This year, for Summer of Service, our focus will be on the Mobile Food Pantry Distribution. Due to the current crisis, Camp Happy Sands has canceled their programing and the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools, being held at Global Learning Academy, hopes to host a four week literacy July program for children in need (including Montclair students). Information on ways to volunteer are forthcoming.

Additional Opportunities:

  • At Baptist Healthcare: See how to help make caregivers smile through donations, messages of kindness, and donation of medical supplies: Baptist Health Care Foundation.

Share the love on social media – make sure to tag West Florida Hospital. West Florida will share the photos with their team!
  • Masks and Gowns: Masks and Gowns are in need and may be donated to Baptist, to North West Florida Hospice (specifically gowns, information forthcoming), and to the Pensacola Medical Supply drive at Hillcrest Church.
