Hope Lutheran Church of Riverside has served the community for the past sixty years. Earlier this month, they donated 10 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of their property to Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB), a longtime partner in their community outreach.
“Our community partners are truly a blessing to the communities they serve, and we have remained proud to be a small part of the fantastic work they do each day,” says Carolyn Solar, CEO of FARSB. “We are so thankful that Hope Lutheran chose to reinvest in their community with a substantial donation to FARSB. Thank you for your generosity!”
A small group of Hope Lutheran members and community volunteers, led by Larry Dodson and Carol Haffter, have kept a weekly food pantry open during the last three years of the pandemic. They are serving approximately 50-60 families per week.
