MENIFEE – On Sunday, Nov. 20, members of The View Church came together in a collective effort to compile over 100 boxes filled with complete Thanksgiving meals for families in the Temecula Valley. Each box, or care package as volunteers called them, was complete with a 10 pound turkey, side dishes and even a pie for dessert. The meals were loaded onto vehicles and delivered joyfully by church staff and volunteers alike. Remaining meals were distributed to local families during a church gathering at Rancho Ramona Park in Menifee Sunday afternoon. The charitable efforts of The View Church benefited over 100 families in the local community, including meals delivered to families in partnership with Circle of Care, Quail Valley Elementary School, Project Touch, and other community organizations. The effort is part of The View Church’s mission to be a church that is necessary in the local community.
Pastor Chuck Keim of Circle of Care expressed sincere gratitude for the donations. “We don’t buy any food,” Keim said. “We pass along all that we can get. We serve about 850 families a week, and this will be very helpful during this holiday season. We thank The View Church for the faithful giving.”
