Paint Downtown Hanford Pink September 4th

Paint Downtown Hanford Pink September 4th

The community is invited to help Adventist Health / Breast Care Center “Paint Downtown Pink” during the Thursday Night Market Place on Thursday, Sept. 4.

Everyone is welcome to wear pink and participate in a contest to win prizes and fitness items.

To promote physical activity, contestants will sign up at the Adventist Health booth to receive a pink pedometer. Then, they will be asked to walk for breast cancer awareness by completing 2,500 steps around the Market Place (about a mile and a quarter). Once completed, participants will receive a free gift while supplies last, and will be entered into a drawing to win larger prizes.

Prizes will also be given to the top three Market Place booths displaying pink pride. Meanwhile, the Adventist Health booth will have a fun Facebook photo booth with wacky pink props for walk participants. Images from the photo booth will be posted on the Adventist Health / Central Valley Network page the following day.

Food Distribution at Christ Church August 23rd

God's Bread Box will hold our monthly food distribution August 23rd at 9:00 AM in the parking lot of Christ Church, 740 N 19th Ave in Lemoore.

We have been distributing food to the needy for three years. Originally, it was budgeted to help 250 families with a box of nutritious food. This year we have stretched our budget to fill an average of 350 boxes each month. The economy may be improving elsewhere, but there are still many people in Kings County/Lemoore area needing help. We are a non-denominational 501(c)3 organization and are completely staffed by volunteers. Some of our funding comes from grants, but most is from the generosity of the community of Lemoore.

Donations are needed to help feed the hungry in Lemoore. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
