This weekend, we will make a 4 difference for 4 organizations in our community. We're very excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Coalition for the Homeless, Russel Home for Atypical Children, Blankner Elementary, and OneBlood. The first 3 projects will take place on Saturday, and the 4th project will take place before, during, and after church on Sunday.
The Orlando Coalition for the Homeless is an amazing organization that is dedicated to meeting the felt needs of Orlando's Homeless community. Christ Church will be partnering with the Coalition for this weekend to help prepare and serve lunch at their center.

The Russel Home for Atypical Children is SODO-based organization that provides a safe living arrangement for children in our community with special needs. Christ Church has worked with Russel Home for many years, and this year we are excited to provide a meal for the residents and the staff. Volunteers will prepare a dish that can feed 30 people at their own homes before meeting at the church to deliver the food.

OneBlood is most famously known for their "Big Red Bus" that drives around town for people to donate blood. Right now, there is a blood shortage in our medical facilities, and they are desperately needing donors. On Sunday, the Big Red Bus will be at the church and available for church attenders to consider donating. As a thank you for donating, each person will receive a $20 gift card, t-shirt, and free medical screening.
