A Simple Gesture
New Mission Opportunity | A Simple Gesture
A Simple Gesture has begun serving the High Point area! A Simple Gesture is a door-to-door food collection organization based in Greensboro that will help provide a steady supply of food to the most vulnerable within our communities.
It is estimated that for every 300 people who participate in the area, one ton of food will be collected each month!
How it Works:
- Sign up to participate to get your green bag from the church. To sign-up or for more questions please contact our Missions Chairman, Lisa Powell by email or by phone at 336-908-3427 or visit A Simple Gesture online.
- Once signed-up just purchase one non-perishable food item a week and store it in the green bag (each bag has a suggested most needed items list, along with the scheduled pick-up dates).
- On the designated pick-up day (one Saturday every other month) leave the bag on your front porch. A volunteer will pick up the bag leave another bag in its place and deliver the filled bags to the food pantries listed below. (Volunteer Drivers are also needed!, be sure to ask upon sign up).
