July 2022 Newsletter

On Our Hearts: Our community urgently needs your help!

For the first time in years our pantry shelves are nearly empty. This summer has been one of the busiest for Hearts. The ministry is touching more lives and providing support to our neighbors in need in many ways. The blessings you share with Hearts has a direct impact on the homeless and oppressed. Scripture reminds us that gifts of food and other resources not only support His ministry but are pleasing to God (Philippians 4). When we come into alignment with God’s will He blesses it and multiplies it. We know summers in WNY are busy and this summer so many activities are back in full swing. That is one reason we are excited to provide multiple ways for you to feed our neighbors. You can donate food by dropping off at the Ministry Campus, shop our Amazon Wish List or scan the QR code (open your camera phone and point it at the code) in this newsletter to donate to our summer food drive. We trust that soon the shelves will not only be full but overflowing with abundance. Please pray for the hungry and hurting. As always, thank you for your faithfulness and support.
