Grove Christian Outreach Center - Virginia

Grove Christian Outreach Center
I am not sure what the official definition of "grove" is. But if you drive on 60 East from Williamsburg you will first pass what was the Anheiser Bush Brewery (they just sold it) and Bush Gardens and then you reach James River Elementary and then across from the school is a trailer park and in the trailer park is a church and outreach center. These are my neighbors; my kids go to school with the kids in this community; 18% of the children in this community are "below poverty level." 40% of the households in this community have an annual income of $25,000 per year or less. The outreach center provides: Food Pantry, Bread N More Wednesdays, USDA TEFAP Food Distributor, Lunch Twice Weekly, CLothes CLoset, Finanial Assistance (Power bills, Rent and Medicine), Transportaion to Medical Appointments, School Supply Closet, Gas Voucher Progaram, "Shoe Bos Gifts For Kids" at Christmas, Backpacks for Kids at Back to School, Distribution of Appliances & Furniture, Distribution of Refurbished Computers to Students, Online Food Stamp Application Assistance.

Currently they operate out of a trailer in the trailer park which is too small. They have an acre down the road and have begun a Capitol Campaign to raise 1.9 Million Dollars to build a building with a kitchen, offices, storage for donations, community room and other needs.
