Mission of the Month – Oakland Hope

Our November Mission of the Month is Oakland Hope, a Christian food pantry and thrift store located at 20 E Walton Blvd in Pontiac.
Their mission is (motivated by the love of Jesus) to alleviate hunger in Oakland Country and empower lives.
The thrift store is a funding mechanism for the food pantry. Oakland Hope is staffed by volunteers who organize, price and sell thrift store items. In the food pantry, they restock food in refrigerators, shop for clients and put boxes of food in cars. Approximately 20 volunteers
are need every day.
Food given to clients includes canned and staple items, milk, eggs, cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and desserts. Some food items are donated and others are purchased. Clients can come once a week for food. Over 12,000 people receive food from Oakland Hope every month.
Check out the website oaklandhope.org or call 248-309-3658.

Pray that God would continue to provide thrift store items, food and volunteers to staff Oakland Hope. Let’s serve our community and share the love of Jesus by volunteering!
