CROS Ministries – We are currently partnering with CROS ministries in their Harvesting Food for Our Community program. Gleaning events take place on Saturday mornings from late November through most of July. We recently participated in mango gleaning on a Saturday morning. Gleaning events typically take place from around 9:00 to 11:30 am. All produce is then distributed by the Palm Beach County Food Bank to local hunger programs.
In addition to gleaning events, we also support the Caring Kitchen and Boca Helping Hands through our monthly food drives and provide volunteers for food pantry sorting. We also hosted our annual food packaging day in the Family Center. We packaged thousands of meals in a single morning! The meals were sent to a needy families through CROS Ministries.
Family Promise – As a partner with Family Promise, Ascension will host families without a home, four times a year for one week. They will spend the evening with us as a host congregation through morning breakfast and will leave us for the Family Promise Day Center. Working with Family Promise we hope to be one congregation of many who will help those who have lost their homes for no reason of their own become reestablished in a home, with a job and functioning fully in our society.
