Below are links to information on some of our outreach partners. These are organizations we support or work in partnership with to provide services to individuals in need in our community.
One of our most valued partnerships is with Common Table and the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation (GMCF)!
Common Table is the organization of churches that provide meals to the Manhattan and Ogden communities, including First Congregational, Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, First Presbyterian, First United Methodist, First Lutheran, St. Thomas More, Faith Evangelical Free, and Seven Dolors/St. Patrick’s in Ogden.
Shortly after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the churches went to take-out meals only, Common Table was awarded a grant from the GMCF That grant helped purchase the needed take-out supplies and the extra food that the churches anticipated they would need. During the three months covered by this grant, Common Table served about 9,100 meals to neighbors who needed them.
The great news is that the GMCF grant has been renewed for the three-month period October – December, 2020, and additional funding is added for the bag lunches provided by Faith Evangelical Free Church and for a start-up meal at St. Patrick’s in Ogden. The total grant amount for this renewal is $11,505.
We are so grateful for the dedicated people at First Lutheran Church and Common Table who are carrying out such a vital mission to our community. And if you know someone at GMCF, please express your appreciation to them as well.
