The C21 Chuck Headley Benevolence Center, in partnership with the Montgomery Area Food Bank, seeks to assist those in need by providing food items that will supplement their normal household food allotment.

Those wishing to register should arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. It is our hope that by serving our neighbors with the compassion of Jesus that they might be blessed for a better tomorrow.
