How You Can Love Your Neighbor

Many of you have inquired about how we will be helping support people who are most vulnerable during this time. We will keep finding ways to be a light for Jesus in our community! In partnership with the organizations that have reached out to us, we have compiled a list of ways to get involved. Please go to the links provided and find a way to help if you can. Together, we can begin covering these great needs. 

OPERATION SHARE HOPE in partnership with the Salvation Army

The East Hill Church Family is teaming up with the Salvation Army to distribute food boxes to our neighbors in need in Gresham through Operation Share Hope! The distribution is every Wednesday from 9am-1pm, right here at East Hill (701 N Main Ave.).

This is an incredible opportunity to tangibly share Christ’s love and meet the needs of our community.

The food will be provided by Salvation Army and they will be setting up and facilitating distribution in the East Hill parking lot. There are a variety of positions that need to be filled like food box loading, traffic control, re-stocking, etc.

Please sign up to volunteer for this important outreach by contacting Deanna Hayworth at  . Anyone high school age or older that would like to volunteer is invited to serve.

"HELP BOXES" through Safe Families for Children

In partnership with Safe Families for Children and DHS, we want to help meet the needs of families who are on the edge of care during this pandemic. If you can help, join us in providing "help boxes" to struggling families. The box consists of groceries, diapers and wipes, children's activities, etc. and you can sign up to help deliver the "help box" by filling out the form here.
