Our Ahwatukee church has an ongoing partnership with the Rio Vista Center. This is a Christian organization that responds to the needs of the Valley’s less fortunate through compassionate initiatives and efforts focused directly on the needs of the community.
On Sunday, August 28, we are restarting our annual food drive for Rio Vista and together we will fill up their pantry, giving their workers the supply of food they need to take care of those in their care.
Just like 2015, we will park a white pick-up truck on the front patio of the worship center and we are asking you to “fill up this truck.” Last year we filled the truck four times.
Our goal for the 2016 Rio Vista Food Drive is to fill the pick-up truck six times! Will you help us?
Anyone ready to fill it up again this week? This is what GO is all about.
Rio Vista Food Drive – together we will equip…
