Oak Cliff Churches for Emergency Aid (OCCEA)
Annual Report 2021

Thank you Father God for blessing us with another beautiful year of serving your people in Oak Cliff and beyond!

Our monthly drive-thru food distributions which began in 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, continued throughout 2021. We hope to continue for as long as we are physically able throughout 2022.

In 2021, we served a total of 4,045 families and a total of 14,829 individuals! The total food weight distributed was 139,923 pounds throughout the year. This was food weight only and does not include our personal hygiene and COVID-19 masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer that we also provided our clients.

North Texas Food Bank and Crossroad Community Service (CCS) granted us resources to maximize what we could provide to our clients. With deep gratitude, the OCCEA Board made a contribution to CCS along with additional contributions to The Senior Source of Dallas and St. Vincent de Paul Thrift of Dallas. Throughout 2021, we continued assisting client residents with their utility bills.

We are everso grateful to the many Oak Cliff church communities and individual benefactors and volunteers who contribute dearly to the life of Oak Cliff Churches for Emergency (OCCEA). Thank You for making the life of others a little more easier especially in times of emergency and hardship! OCCEA could not have survived these past 45-years of serving without your help and generosity.

God bless you and keep you.
