Furloughed Employees Volunteer to Distribute Thousands of Meals

Apr 22, 2020 | News, Press Release

During National Volunteer Week, Assembly of God Headquarters employees step up to volunteer their time to pack and distribute ready-to-eat meals for local non-profit.

More than fifty furloughed employees from The U.S. Assemblies of God national office, located in Springfield, Mo., are volunteering to help pack and serve ready-to-eat meals at the Life360 Community and Leadership Development Center at 1901 E. Division St. and Life360 Chesterfield Church at 2220 W. Chesterfield Blvd on Thursday, April 23, 2020. Volunteers will join paid staff in separate designated areas designed to adhere to safe distancing guidelines.

Life360 distributes meals at the Springfield Center from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Friday, and at Life360 Chesterfield from noon to 3 p.m., Monday – Friday. Executive Director Jeremy Hahn states that all children, 18 and younger, are eligible to receive a week’s worth of meals, and Life360 will also offer additional donated items to families at Thursday’s distribution including diapers, while supplies last.

“We are excited and thankful to have the help of our Assembly of God Headquarters friends in this time of crisis and uncertainty for Springfield families,” said Life360 Community Services President, Ted Cederblom. “We serve over 60 thousand meals from these two locations each week. Parents and grandparents are coming to us each day and telling us how much this food helps them feed their children.”
