“Giving Back to the Community: Honoring our Frontline Workers”

Abundant Life Outreach Ministry, Walmart and State Farm
Present: “Giving Back to the Community: Honoring our Frontline Workers”

South Louisville Baptist Church Family Life Center
Friday, May 29, 2020
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Abundant Life Outreach Ministry was founded in 1999 by Aline Haynes and was designed to meet the emergency needs of the community. Although the organization has raised many funds to help pay utility bills, medical bills, transportation for doctor visits and many other expenses, it is best known for the community Thanksgiving Luncheon entitled “Feed the 1,000.” The luncheon has provided over 19,000 meals throughout the community since 2002.

Abundant Life Outreach Ministry has partnered with Walmart and State Farm to deliver meals to many frontline workers. We wanted to show out love and appreciation to those who put their lives on the line for others. Lunch will be prepared by Aline’s Catering Service in which 450 meals will be delivered.

Special thanks to all sponsors, the catering crew and all volunteers who helped to make this event possible.
