Local church gives 1300 boxes of food to community
Living Proof Church received a semi-truck full of approximately 1300 boxes of food consisting of vegetables, fruit, and dairy products on Tues. July 14. As a part of their ongoing community outreach, they opened their doors and shared with the Groesbeck area community. One box per family was provided in a drivethru pick-up line fashion.
Of the 1300 boxes delivered, roughly 900 boxes went out to the Groesbeck community, 50 to Mart and Thornton, and 10 boxes to Temple. In addition to those, a little over 300 boxes went to two churches in Mexia, Mexia First Assembly, and Greater Little Zion Baptist.
The boxes averaged 27 lbs each. In total, the cost of the food that went out was $30,418.02.
The contribution came as part of a program from Convoy of Hope, an international relief agency, and Rural Compassion, an agency inside of CoH that helps small-town churches serve their communities.
Living Prood sends special thanks to the City of Groesbeck for forklift assistance and operators to unload the truck, the Young Marines, and Groesbeck Narcotics Anonymous for helping load vehicles.
Living Proof Church is located at 1207 E Navasota, Groesbeck.
