Every year, Faith Baptist Church hosts a Bar B Q fundraiser in June to support its summer youth programs. This year, AGX Freight gave the church event an added boost by purchasing 40 dinners for Beaches Habitat for Humanity families. AGX reached out to BEAM to find out if there was a community partner in the Beaches area that might appreciate a hot meal. BEAM Food Bank Manager, Meagan Anderson, suggested that AGX contact Beaches Habitat for Humanity and the groundwork was laid for a plan to have Faith Baptist Church deliver Bar B Q dinners to Beaches Habitat on June 11. BEAM contributed by bringing fresh produce and bread donated from local grocers. Habitat families were treated to a nice lunch as well as plenty of food to take home. Church volunteers, Amanda Barnett and her daughter delivered the food to the community center and assisted with set up and distribution. AmeriCorp member, Cameron Edwards, assigned to Beaches Habitat was on-hand to help, as well as Beaches Habitat Familiy Services Director, Joyce Freeman. Beaches Habitat for Humanity President and CEO, Curtis Ford stopped by to show his appreciation, as well as greet community members.
