About Our Building
Growing & Expanding Active Faith is a Community Wide Project
The new location will offer double the space to house our food pantry plus all our support programs. With a modest budget our goal is to design an attractive building. In-Kind donations for product and licensed labor is welcomed. Relationships with multiple local businesses, local government, civic groups, and churches are well established and will raise to a higher level of partnership. Local church groups, businesses and civic groups have all offered to help us move. The excitement is building and we plan on a grand celebration at our open house in 2024.

Reasons To Give
On her way out of the food pantry with a cart full of groceries, a client turn toward us and said this:
"I appreciate getting help with food here at the pantry, but what moves me even more, is that people care enough to give it."
A little girl's birthday story
A dad and his daughter stopped in for food assistance. They were living out of their car. The little girl sat down in the lobby and looked so sad. The dad told us it was her birthday today, and she is feeling sad because he wasn't able to give her a cake or a gift. Active Faith staff flew into action. Within a few minutes a birthday crown was gently placed on her head. She was handed a birthday bag with a card, gift and a bakery treat. Together everyone in the room sang happy birthday. Her eyes welled up in tears and she beamed the biggest smile that lit up the room.
A Hand Up
When 'Heather' was a little girl, she remembers her mom would bring her to the little grocery store in town for food supplies. Mom was always happy on grocery shopping day. She would always let Heather pick out something special from the fresh fruit section or the bakery area. Mom's spirits lifted even higher when they got home mom chatted happily while together they put all the food away. Heather grew up, went to college and married. Life was good. She and her husband opened their own business in town. One day, it dawned on Heather that the little grocery store was actually a food pantry and that she and her mom had faced financial hardship. Heather was overwhelmed with gratitude knowing that her town cared enough to give and help those in need. Today, Heather and her husband give back to the community by raising money and collecting food donations for the little grocery store that helped lift her out of poverty, because together we do make a difference.
