CARE Mobile Pantry: A Partnership in the Fight Against Hunger

June 15 was the kickoff date for the brand new Community Action Relief Effort, or CARE, Mobile Pantry Program.

It was a warm day, but it was a great day thanks to the help of the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety and volunteers from the Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church.

We can’t thank our partners enough but would like to share the coverage from yesterday’s newscasts to show the impact made.
