Food drive for families in need

For so many people, just putting
food on the table is a big concern right now. 
Some family members have lost their jobs while others may be unable to
provide for their families.

That is why a team of women from
Cayman Believers Ministry have stepped up to the plate -they intend to feed as
many needy families as they can before the food drive deadline of December 11.

“Project Love – Good Neighbouring
Feeding the Hungry” is an effort that needs community support, said founding
member Judy Faye McGaw.

“Needy families do exist in the
Cayman Islands, it always did, it is more evident now because of the down-turn
in the economy and we need to lend a helping hand,” she said.

So far, the food drive has managed
to feed 58 families on Grand Cayman but many more were in desperate need, she
said.

Over the coming weeks, the team of
women will be been seen at local supermarkets such as Foster’s Strand, Savannah
and Republic supermarkets making a plea to shoppers to support these families
in Cayman who can’t make ends meet.

“We are asking the community to
please pick up some extra non-perishable food items on their next trip to the supermarket
and place these items in the food baskets provided. Persons can also support
the cause by giving a monetary donation.

For people who have food items but
do not have time to drop it off, the group is willing to do a pick up, just
call the committee members and they will assist by picking up the items for
you.

If you miss Saturday’s food drive
and would like to support the women’s ministry in aiding these families you can
make a donation directly to the Cayman Believers Ministry or by contacting one
of the members, Judy Faye at 925-7077 or 925-3218 or 928-3663..

There is also a drop off point at
National Security Services Offices in Trinity Square on Eastern Avenue.

Cayman Believers Ministry also
wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to those persons such as Foster’s Group
and the many other individuals who have continued to support the cause.

Cayman Believer’s Ministries has
made this project an annual event and volunteers are welcome.
