July Social Justice Collection: LB Community Table

Our Church dedicates the Sunday collection of money on the second Sunday of the month. In July: Long Beach Community Table. You can give all month to Long Beach Community Table by indicating so, when you make your donation.

Long Beach Community Table fosters sustainable community to support the well-being and empowerment of food- and housing-insecure residents in the greater Long Beach area.

By providing nutritious food, hygiene products, clothing, and other basic essentials with dignity and compassion Long Beach Community Table aims to enable self-sufficiency. These efforts are made collectively through sharing fresh produce, nutritious food, basic necessities, educational programs, and other community resources.

Long Beach Community Table collaborates with numerous local organizations, farmers’ markets, urban gardens, and businesses that contribute generous food, hygiene, financial, and other in-kind donations. In fact, our church is happy to share some of our produce with them.

The Social Justice Collection is taken on the second Sunday of each month, but you can support the designated organization until the last Sunday of the month, by mail, text, or online.
