What we do.
This is a tatse of our 5 top Projects. We need you!
The Isaiah 58 Pantry, located 370 S Long Hollow Rd. Maryville TN, provides families with emergency food for 3 to 4 days. The Food is available at RIO Central church's office which is open mon-fri 9am-5pm.
#2 Boxing Food
One of the primary volunteering oportunities for the Isaiah 58 Project is to perpare food boxes for distribution. This involves unloading the truck and setting up the food line 3 to 4 times a month usually on friday mornings(10am-12pm).
On friday nights 6 pm at the RIO Central Gym, approx 50 volunteers are needed to build the boxes and load them in the delivery trucks.
#3 Food Distribution
Once a month we have a team of volunteers that deliver food boxes to widows, shut-ins and to local housing projects.
We also set up distribution lines 1 to 3 times a month at area schools, bussineses or churches so that we can reach the maximum number of people in our community.
#4 Disaster Response
We have a team of volunteers that responds to disasters both locally and a national level.
We have join forces with Operation Compassion and God's Pit Crew to provide inmediate humanitarian support as well as long term recovery.
#5 BackPack Program
Isaiah 58 currently is a distribution location for 10 local schools reciving food from Second Harvest back pack program. This program provides food to send home with the children every friday throughout the school year. Many of these children would have nothing to eat.
We need volunteers every 6 to 8 weeks to help package and distribute the food to the schools.
