Peers Receive Holiday Food Bags

Food bagsFor the third month, peers have received a special gift from Adventist Community Services of Southwest Georgia. Just in time for Christmas, non-perishable food products were delivered to Perry Wellness Center and bagged for over 60 peers. The December food selections included items for a traditional holiday meal.

With funds from the McCormick Foundation, the Bradley-Turner Foundation and the support of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the non-profit Adventist Community Services organization distributes bags of food to the needy throughout Central and Southwest Georgia. Each month, approximately 15,000 – 20,000 pounds of non-perishable food are hauled from the Macon distribution center for delivery on four different routes throughout the area. Senior centers and other non-profit groups are the primary recipients of the food.

In the above photo, peers display their December food bags in front of Rudy’s Happy Patch Market. Our thanks to Carolyn and Hew Lipscomb and their fine organization!
