As we’ve told everyone before, Perry Wellness Center has become a beneficiary of donated food deliveries from Adventist Community Services/South Georgia. The monthly food deliveries have continued throughout the cold winter months, providing non-perishable foods that are distributed to our peers.
We recently got a few more facts and figures about this wonderful non-profit organization. Adventist Community Services/South Georgia currently makes food deliveries to 23 different sites, from Thomasville to Griffin, on a total of four routes. Food supplies are purchased from the Macon Food Bank at a total cost of $1500-2000 per month. The food is then divided into food bags that provide meals for 1,382 individuals each month.
Directors Hugh and Carolyn Lipscomb have organized the food distribution into an efficient operation that provides a needed service to many low-income individuals. “We enjoy helping others in our service area,” Carolyn Lipscomb explains.
Donations are always appreciated for this worthwhile effort. Readers wishing to make a donation or obtain further information can contact the Lipscombs at 4580 Bedgood Avenue, Arabi, GA 31712.
At Perry Wellness Center, we look forward to each month’s van delivery. When the food arrives, peers fill blue bags with seven to ten food items for distribution to peer members.
