DBCC is giving
Last Sunday, Douglass Blvd. Christian Church voted to approve a gift of $15,000 to New Roots--a local non-profit charged with making fresh produce available in food deserts here in Louisville. With this contribution, as well as money they've already raised, they will be able to open a market in Smoketown, making fresh, local food available and affordable to a community that traditionally has had few options.
Along with this proposal, the congregation voted to earmark an even larger sum of money for future gifts. These funds are all part of the development of what we're (for now) calling an outreach initiative. With the funds that we've set aside, those who have been named to the Outreach Task Force, along with leadership, will be emphasizing the importance of community giving as a part of our mission, as well as seeking out and vetting potential recipients and partners in our journey.
