Iglesia Ni Cristo helps Red Deer’s Mustard Seed

Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo from all over central Alberta recently conducted a food drive.

More than 100 church members collected about 130 boxes of non-perishable food items for The Mustard Seed in Red Deer.

This is their third food donation to the community. The first was in April 2018, when they donated 100 boxes of canned goods and noodles to the Safe Harbour Society.

In January, approximately 200 church members returned to the Safe Harbour Society to donate about 140 boxes of goods.

Sunday, they continued to help the community by supporting The Mustard Seed.

“Thank you very much for this donation. This will definitely help this institution to provide the less fortunate people who come here for food,” said Mustard Seed volunteer Andrew Camade.
