What We’re Doing to Help
Mission : Share
Mission Share, our main Greece Campus service partner, focuses on sharing God’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in the community. Their motto is “Sharing God’s love in practical ways” and they do this by meeting many physical needs such as clothes, food and school supplies.
What Can You Do?
Consider organizing a drive to collect needed items such as food, toiletries and school supplies or help with any of the other opportunities found here: http://northridgeserves.com/missionshare/
