Immediately following Hurricane Katrina, God moved in the lives of countless people from across the country to send food, clothing, and relief supplies to our area. We began gathering these items on our church property and distributing them to our community. Three and a half years later, many find themselves still in extreme need. Lakeshore Baptist Church desires to continue ministering help and hope in the name of Jesus Christ in a very tangible way through our distribution center.
We rely completely on donations to stock the shelves. If you would like to contribute to this cause, see our “needs” page for a list of suggested items you can send. When your team makes a mission trip to Lakeshore, feel free to bring these items with you for distribution. Many churches find that a food drive leading up to their trip gives those unable to come a good way to directly help families on the gulf coast. You can also send financial contributions to Lakeshore Baptist Church and designate “distribution center” with your gift. We can then purchase items, in bulk, locally or through our regional “Feeding America” food bank.
