On Saturday May 19th, we came down to visit the congregation of True Holy Church: City of Refuge in Brooklyn New York. True Holy Church submitted a heart warming video for our Something Big Contests awhile back and with fan votes and determination, won the entire contest and received a private concert and breakfast provided by Pillsbury’s delicious Egg Scrambles and Grands! Biscuits.
True Holy Church’s community service initiative captured the essence of the contest. The 100 member church has been serving their community through their Kitchen Pantry and Clothing Bank since 1988. The church’s members volunteer every Saturday morning preparing and giving out bags containing food for those in need and simultaneously run a clothing drive where the community can obtain as many articles of clothing as they need without limitations. The Kitchen Pantry project donates an average of 275 bags to the community a week and reported 10,000 bags given to the community, roughly equaling 33, 000 recipients in 2010.

Thanks again to everyone at True Holy Church for doing Something Big!
