Our Volunteers

h2>

Having enough food for your family is a basic necessity for life, however there are many in our area that simply do not have enough food to feed their families and struggle everyday to meet this need. God’s Cupboard is one of Connected Blessings’ ministries that serves this need and provides large quantities of food to those that desperately need help.

Volunteer Stories:

These pictures represent a snap shot of all the people who assist us, at last count,

God has sent us 51 servants who regularly serve in one of the 3 areas.

We can always use volunteers to help pack, organize and distribute food.

Founders

My wife and I are the founders of Connected Blessings and we started this non-profit company in 2004.Our goal is to give God’s abundant food to all those in need. We want to sincerely thank all of you; for without the Lord and all of you none of this would have happened.

Hi I’m Jerry,

I’ve been working with God’s Cupboard and this ministry for over 19 months and when you come to visit us you will find me on the check in table getting you registered. We at God’s Cupboard get to know each and every one of those we serve and consider it a real blessing to bring God and His abundance to all! Personally, I feel privileged to be a part of this ministry and look forward to seeing all the volunteers and those coming for food on a weekly basis. My prayer is to see God do a wonderful work in this ministry, and bring as many people as possible to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Hi, I’m Tina,
