The Dorothy L. Hobbs Food Pantry, operated by Galilee Baptist Church, is located at the KDC. Guests are served Mondays and Thursdays from 9 – 11 am.
Clothing & Personal Needs
The KDC offers our guests the opportunity to receive free clothing items every six months in seasonal appointments (fall/winter and spring/summer). Guests may request hygiene items every six months and household items every 12 months.
Only through the generous donations of our community members are we able to share the love of Jesus Christ and provide our guest with this valuable service; the Deacons Conference is so grateful for this wonderful opportunity.
Our Direct Response Servants (DRS) will meet with each guest to listen to their story. Some have just been released from prison, others deal with addictions, while others are single moms trying to support a family on a minimum wage income. Attendance at devotions is not required for guests to be seen or to receive services. The goal is to help with tangible needs as well as to share Christ’s love through compassion and encouragement.
Furniture / Appliances
Guests must see a Direct Response Servant (DRS) to submit a furniture/appliance request. Identification and a lease or the name and phone number of your landlord are needed to confirm your residency. Only one furniture/appliance item may be requested.
Guests may request financial assistance every 18 months. We currently see two financial requests in the morning ONLY. KDC assists with a variety of needs. Guests meet with a Direct Response Servant (DRS) to have their needs assessed.
