Ekklesia Volunteers at Helpline Food Bank

Over the next few months some significant projects will happen at our South Kitsap Food Bank. Ekklesia has been asked to provide as many volunteers as possible to help make these important events happen that will feed thousands of people in the Port Orchard area. All volunteers will need to fill out a new volunteer application form that will clear us for duty at several of the next events. We have been asked to assist the food bank with the following events: 

1. Community Trunk or Treat Oct. 31st - 4:30-6:30pm
"That One Place" restaurant parking lot- 
Thousands of families have been invited from across Port Orchard. 

2. Postal Food Drive- Nov. 5th 2-5pm at the food bank 
Volunteers will be needed to unload the postal delivery trucks.

3. Thanksgiving set-up at the Armory- Nov. 20th 8-11am
We have been asked to provide volunteers to set up the large amount of food on pallets inside the National Guard Armory on Mile Hill. 
 
4. Thanksgiving Food Distribution- Nov. 21st & 22nd
Ekklesia has been asked to help distribute the food at the Armory over the two days to over 1,200 families or around 5,000 people. 

5. Christmas set-up at the Armory- Dec. 21st
Ekklesia has been asked to assist the Food Bank with the set up of their food and presents distribution on Wednesday, Dec. 21st 

6. Christmas Food and Presents- Dec. 22nd, 23rd
Ekklesia volunteers will help with the food and presents distribution to over 1,200 families over two days. 
  Candy Needed! For the Jackson Park- Ghost Train Event
Ekklesia needs a lot of candy to help with our two large public events that we will be participating in at the end of this month. The Kitsap Foster Care Association's Ghost Train event on Saturday, October 29th will see thousands of people in Jackson Park that evening. Ekklesia will be there with several canopies filled with carnival games. We will need lots of candy to give out to the many visitors that evening!

Open Doors
Everywhere we go God seems to be opening doors into places in our community where He wants us to be ministering! Every few days I am made aware of how God is blessing our work as He places open doors before us and we receive special invitations to walk right in. We have been so blessed and it is because of so many people we know that have helped us in this work. Thank you for your support.
