Elijah Purcell (7), has been saving his money from dog-sitting for the neighbor and birthday money for years. Rather than spending it on himself, he chose to share "The Light of Life" (John 8:12).
Last Monday, he approached his mom and explained that his school was collecting food for neighbors in need through MUST Ministries.
Elijah's "Kiki," Kaye Cagle, is a director for MUST, and he knows what important work they do. He has also heard of the drastically increased need for food due to COVID-19.
He and his mom reached out to the Barrett Pavilion Aldi store manager about the current limitations on purchasing canned food. The manager was fantastic and wanted to help get a larger donation to MUST.
Elijah ordered the maximum amount of 200 cans of chili with his own money and set up the pickup date to help load the cans.
Please join Elijah by donating to the food drive. We are still accepting donations through Fri, Nov 6.
