CoServ Charitable Foundation presented a $15,000 grant to Community Lifeline Center to help stock the shelves of the Lifeline Market. Clients choose food items for their families and can also receive personal care items and cleaning supplies. CoServ Area Manager Dan Mugg said, “We thank you more than words can say for the volunteer work that you do to help Collin County families get back on their feet.” And Dan, the CLC thanks you for CoServ’s support.
Thirteen churches in north Collin County have committed to support Community Lifeline Center with monthly financial donations, prayers, special projects and more. These Covenant Congregations save time and costs by referring requests to the CLC through Community, powered by Seeladora, a web-based networking tool. Members of these congregations know that client needs are validated and are not duplicated or extended for long periods. By focusing on solutions for those who have been blindsided by a crisis, the CLC honors the covenant of these congregations:
First Christian Church
First United Methodist Church
Grace Community Church
Hillcrest Christian Church
St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church
Trinity Presbyterian Church
Waddill Street Baptist Church
