Denton Wesleyan Church in Denton, N.C., sent 38 people to Brooklyn, New York, November 21-23. The team took coats, blankets, toiletries, scarves, gloves, hats, and other warm clothing to assist residents in the winter months. The group also took hygiene packs, food, and blankets to the homeless in a park in Manhattan.

Denton Wesleyan, a church in the North Carolina East District, offers the same assistance to the Denton and South Davidson community in North Carolina through their CHAMP (Community Health and Mentoring Project) Center. The center is a 501c3 that provides food, clothes, children’s and teen educational programs, and a monthly community meal.

The church and the CHAMP Center have distributed over 500 bags of groceries, served over 1,400 meals (and delivered over 300 more), provided 75 families with school supplies, provided hundreds of coats, blankets, and clothes, as well as helped several families with minor home repair needs.
