Eastridge Church to Provide Groceries and Supplies to 500 Families in Convoy of Hope Partnership
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Eastridge Church will provide free packages of non-perishable groceries and household supplies to 500 families in the community on Saturday, April 18, beginning at 9 a.m. (while supplies last) at their Issaquah location, 24205 SE Issaquah Fall City Rd, Issaquah, WA.
Steve Jamison, lead pastor of Eastridge Church states, “We are thankful to partner with Convoy of Hope to provide assistance to 500 families from our area who can use some help in this time of need.”
Convoy of Hope is a faith-based disaster relief organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches, and disaster response.
Eastridge will practice safe distancing protocols through a drive-through distribution method. Drivers will be asked to open their trunk (no need to leave their car) and volunteers will load the supplies of pre-packed bags, while supplies last.
Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope shares that, “this is a united act of compassion. We’re seeing so many groups link arms to help people get through this crisis. In some respects, kindness is a medicine that many Americans need right now, and we’re seeing it being given out across the nation.”
