Thanksgiving Food Basket Outreach

SubPage_Thanksgiving

The Holidays at CityLink more than any other time of the year, provides a unique opportunity to connect deeply into the community. During the holiday season, we are inviting you to come and share your heart at CityLink, a place where God’s purpose can be realized in the lives of people who are in need and broken. He wants to use you to accomplish His purpose.

At Water of Life, sharing God’s blessings with others is what we are called to do through our CityLink Outreach Ministry. What a wonderful way to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday by blessing those who otherwise might not be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.  Please bring your food items to the designated pick-up area at each venue.

Look for the designated donation boxes in the worship center foyer, one story lobby, and administration office on Miller Ave. There will also be donation boxes on the Upland Campus.
