15,000 Meals Packed
In November 2017, we hosted our second packing event with Rise Against Hunger, packing over 15,000 meals in 2 hours to be sent to areas in the developing world in need of relief. Thanks to everyone who came!
Serve Our City
In September 2017, Journey partnered with Overton Park Church for a day of service in 4 different locations across Memphis. We partnered again with the Salvation Army for a cleanup project at one of their locations, a cleanup crew went to Denver Park in Frayser, another group helped with some projects at Asha's Refuge, and another group had a play day with children at a local refugee center. It was a beautiful day of coming together to love our city!
On May 13th, we assembled Mother's Day care packages for 60 women living in a local Salvation Army shelter.
We collected specific items, to pack into tote bags that were delivered to the shelter.
Stop Hunger Now
In November, 2016, we partnered with Stop Hunger Now to pack 12,000 meals for people who are food insecure all around the world. We had over 150 volunteers join us for this exciting event!
Shape Up Memphis
This past summer (2016) we partnered with Warzone Fitness to host Shape Up Memphis! Our camp participants challenged each other to get fit, eat healthy, and find a strength they didn't know they had. It was an exciting month and participants saw exciting results!
In May of 2016 we hosted a clothing drive to support The Refugee Empowerment Program here in Memphis Tennessee. On the last day of collection, we gathered to sort and box all donations! "He who has two coats, let him give to him who has none." Luke 3:11
