Collecting for Community Needs in April 2021
Updated: May 15
Join Waterbrook as we partner with the Wylie Christian Care Center in April to collect goods for those within our community in need.
The Wylie Community Christian Care Center is a benevolent effort by our community to provide for those in need within the Wylie area. The Christian Care Center is 100% supported by local donations. They are supported by Waterbrook as a monthly benevolent mission effort. We do additional supply and food drives within the year. They accept food, clothing, and monetary donations to aid in their mission to provide short term emergency needs for local families. The Care Center helps pay certain bills, depending on available funds, and provides food and clothing. They serve Wylie, Lavon, Nevada, Josephine, Copeville, Royse City, Sachse, and Murphy.
Donations in the month of April may be dropped in the WBF lobby on Sunday mornings before and after services or at the church office during office hours on weekdays.
Please make sure donations are appropriate, not expired, and something your family would be grateful to receive.
A current list of needs at the Care Center:
Jam or Jelly (plastic containers please)
Boxed Dinners (i.e. Hamberger Helper, Tuna Helper)
Canned Meat (i.e. Chicken, Tuna, SPAM)
Ground Coffee (small packages please)
1 or 2 lbs Bags of Rice
Another Way to Support the Christian Care Center is through the Annual TASTE OF WYLIE - This year on Monday, May 3, 2021
This pandemic has taxed resources in this country like nothing many of us have ever seen. Naturally, the health industry has been greatly affected. Food pantries have also struggled to meet more than the usual needs of our community. We have seen people come to the Christian Care Center for food and financial assistance that have never been to a food pantry or applied for financial aid. Even though we see “light at the end of the tunnel”, it is going to be awhile before people have caught up financially, and we still see an increased need for food and financial assistance. We want to be prepared to continue helping and ask for your partnership to help us meet the needs of our community. The Taste of Wylie is our major fundraiser and will be held on Monday, May 3, from 11 am until 1 pm, with May 6 being the rain date at Olde City Park in downtown Wylie.
A limited number of tickets are available for purchase at the Care Center website - https://wyliecommunitychristiancare.org/
