Covenant Christian Reformed Church Hosting 2nd Annual Food and Personal Hygiene Drive

The drive is taking place tomorrow, Saturday, April 1st, in the parking lot of the church.

WOODSTOCK - Covenant Christian Reformed Church is getting ready for it's 2nd Annual Food and Personal Hygiene Drive.  

The drive is hosted in support of Ingamo Family Homes, a transitional housing organization for women in need.  

Deb Grootenboer, who works with the church, expressed why the Ingamo organization is close to their hearts.  

"It's a non-profit charitable organization that provides support, advocacy, and housing to abused women and children as they transition from broken to brave in a safe and equitable community." 

Deb added how Ingamo Family Homes helps women in the county.  

"The journey takes these women through a time of building their self-esteem, life skills, parenting skills, so they can break out of the abusive cycle, gain independence and feel empowered to work, parent and provide for their family."  

The drive is taking place tomorrow, Saturday, April 1st, in the parking lot of the church, located at 410 Lansdowne Ave in Woodstock. The collection starts at 10:00 a.m. and the table will close at 12:00 p.m. 

Big ticket items they are looking for include diapers and feminine hygiene products, snack foods like apple sauces or granola bars, and breakfast cereals. They are also accepting gift cards of $5.00 or $10.00 for women to use to buy fresh produce.  

Covenant Church works to be a light in Oxford County serving with care and compassion.  

Deb was in the Heart FM Studio today chatting with Dan and Marcie about the event. Listen to the full interview below:
