Members of the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo) in Red Deer conducted a successful food drive through the Aid to Humanity Program of the Felix Y. Manalo (FYM) Foundation, also the worldwide volunteer force of the INC Giving Project.

The group of more than 100 people gathered at Safe Harbour and were able to turn over a total of 140 boxes, weighing over 4,200 pounds.

The group, led by Supervising District Manager Jose Razon II, congregated hours before the set pick-up time to gather the boxes full of non-perishable items.

This is the second time this group in Red Deer came together to conduct a food drive activity. Last April, members of INC were able to collect and estimated 100 boxes and donated 3,000 pounds of food.

“IWe’re consistently conducting aid for humanity projects all over the world. It gives us awareness that not everyone is fortunate to have necessities in life and one of the way we can help them is to give them temporary relief from day to day struggles,” said Razon II.
