BRING CHANGE MINISTRIES AND FEED THE CHILDREN
400 FAMILIES TO RECEIVE FOOD AND ESSENTIALS
LONGWOOD, Fla. (Nov. 18, 2011) – On Tuesday, Nov. 22, Feed The Children will deliver a semi tractor-trailer full of food and essentials to Northland Church at 530 Dog Track Road. The food and essentials will be distributed to families beginning at 4 p.m.
This distribution is sponsored PsychCare and Bring Change Ministries. Since the March airing of a CBS “60 Minutes” special spotlighting homeless children in central Florida, the Orlando community has increased efforts to reach these children. This distribution is a direct result of PsychCare, Bring Change Ministries and Northland Church coming together to do their part.
Bring Change Ministries has identified the recipient families. Each family will receive a 25-pound box of food and a 10-pound box of personal care items. The boxes are designed to help a family of four, for up to one week.
Orlando has a 22.3 percent child poverty rate. In fact, the number of children living in poverty in Florida could fill (742,023) the Amway Center more than 37 times.
“We are so thankful to PsychCare and Bring Change Ministries for helping to provide the food and essentials to students and their families,” said Tony Sellars, spokesperson for Feed The Children. "We hope more people will respond to help us put more trucks on the road and provide assistance for children and their families who are suffering through the current economic downturn.”
