Never Alone Events
Never Alone can only do what it does with generous donors who support the ministry. We are not financially supported by any churches in the area and must rely on community members and volunteers to provide financially so that we can help the less fortunate in our community. For every $1 dollar received, we are able to purchase $8 in food from the Atlanta Food Bank. In 2017, we served 5,228 families, representing 19,731 individuals, and gave out 376,823 pounds of food to the hungry through the Never Alone Food Pantry. We also sponsored over 700 families at Thanksgiving and gave 319 children a Christmas to remember. But most importantly, we built some great relationships with people who needed to just have someone care. Today, we continue to provide vital connections to food and God through our ministry.
To help offset our operating costs, and to help prepare for upcoming expansion projects, we will be sponsoring multiple fund raisers to help us keep up with the ever growing need in our community. Please mark your calendars and save the dates for these worthwhile events.
