Service Opportunities Sullivan County

CURRENT Serving Opportunities:

City Church in Kingsport is asking for either one-time monetary donations, or monthly donations, to help support a community food pantry which will serve families in need who are connected to one of their three campuses [Port City in Kingsport, Rhythm City in Bristol, and Depot City in Johnson City].
The food items are stored at their church facility on Center Street in Kingsport and then organized into boxes – each containing items to make up 3 days breakfast meals, 3 days lunch meals, and 3 days of dinner meals for 4-6 people. Their goal is to make 90 food boxes by June to be distributed throughout the summer to area families in need through their different food pantries.
If your church, Grow/Small Groups or your family would like to donate you can give online at:    Choose “Give” in the menu bar, then change title bar to say “Food Pantry” and donate the desired amount.
Or send a tax deductible check w/“Food Pantry boxes” in the memo line, to:
The City Church
2601 E. Center Street
Kingsport, TN. 37664
