Kids Connection is a new outreach initiative to support students who have experienced homelessness in Spokane Valley, and specifically students attending Evergreen Middle School and living at Pope Francis Haven. Currently, there are about 15 students in need of a mentor.
The food pantry ministry has been functioning exceptionally well under the guidance of a loyal team of volunteers from Spokane Valley Church.
Over the past several years of our service together, the Northwest Connect Food Pantry Ministry set a new record for food distribution at our NE Community Center location in the Hillyard neighborhood, sharing more than 16,000 additional pounds of food than had been given away in the previous year of operation under SNAP.
That means our church volunteers surpassed the previous total in food distribution through this ministry by more than eight full tons! The success of those efforts is creating even more opportunity for us to serve in the coming year, so please continue to remember this life-giving ministry in your daily prayers and consider how you might be a part of this compassionate ministry team as a volunteer or financial supporter. This outreach ministry continues to grow, and the hungry people we are now serving in the compassionate Spirit and name of Jesus can really use your help.

The non-food pantry at Northwest Connect, A Hand Up, is open to serve people in the Hillyard area from 5:00-6:00 pm on the second and fourth Mondays, and from 10:00-11:00 am on the third Saturdays. If you would like to volunteer to work a shift at the pantry or help with stocking the shelves with products, etc., talk to Barbara Olson.
