Santa Cruz Revival – Agape Manna hosted a mini connect in January at the Homeless Services Center, warming hearts and filling the stomachs of people in need. Volunteers from throughout the community provided 75 haircuts, foot baths and clean socks, along with 350 hamburgers, split pea soup, rice and beans.
The grand unveiling of their mobile-pantry also took place that day. Several years in the making, the mobile pantry is an old truck remodeled with appliances purchased using infrastructure grant money awarded by Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County. The purchases included a freezer, upright drink cooler, hot food steam table and a sandwich/salad prep table. With the new rig, they’ll be able to offer coffee, sandwiches, hot meals, and most importantly, hope, to the homeless.
Despite the fact that the members of their congregation do not have a church they are still able to accomplish big acts of kindness!
