CROSBY – Churches United in Caring continues to care and feed local families during the Covid–19 pandemic.
For about 37 years now, since the pastors of the Brethren, Methodist, Catholic and First Baptist Churches decided that their community outreaches would be much more effective if they united into a single outreach ministry, Churches United in Caring has enabled locals to find “hidden treasures and good gestures” in Crosby.
Last Friday, at the 944 Church Street location locals rounded the Crosby Fair & Rodeo parking circle to wait for their chance to get some groceries. Volunteers checked the names of recipients and asked them to open the boots to have the groceries loaded by hard working volunteers into the rear of the vehicle.
According to volunteer manager, Skip Greenwade, “As you know this facility has been helping people and we were trying to figure out how to accomplish this when a local guy donated a sizable check stipulating that it go to helping folks locally. We used the funds to buy food from the Houston Food Bank and local produce became available; so, at the last minute, thanks to volunteers we were able to assemble this effort.”
“The next food distribution at CUIC will be at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, May 29.” said Skip Greenwade.
