What began as a single class project serving 8 families has now grown to an average of 175 families served each year. With over 250 multi-generational volunteers giving hundreds of volunteer hours throughout the year, this church-wide project is at the heart of Calvary’s mission as a “Christ filled church in the center of our community”.
