Groceries giveaway at Eastridge Church, April 18

The Issaquah location will give away bags of groceries to 500 families.

A local Issaquah Church is stepping up to keep community members fed during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

Eastridge Church will provide free packages of non-perishable groceries and household supplies to 500 families in the community beginning at 9 a.m. (while supplies last) on Saturday, April 18, at its Issaquah location (24205 SE Issaquah Fall City Road).

“We are thankful to partner with Convoy of Hope to provide assistance to 500 families from our area who can use some help in this time of need,” lead pastor Steve Jamison said.

Convoy of Hope is a faith-based disaster relief organization with a mission to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreach and disaster response.

Eastridge will practice safe distancing protocols through a drive-through distribution method. Drivers will be asked to open their trunk (no need to leave their car) and volunteers will load the supplies of pre-packed bags, while supplies last.

“This is a united act of compassion. We’re seeing so many groups link arms to help people get through this crisis,” said Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “In some respects, kindness is a medicine that many Americans need right now, and we’re seeing it being given out across the nation.”
