“A Hand Up – Not a Handout”
Much more than bread. Each Friday the Methodist Churches of Oak Ridge meets the Second Harvest truck at the Kroger store to pick up fresh meat, bread, produce and dairy products, which is given at our office to 40-70 families.
Provides emergency help on a case-by-case basis for items such as hearing aids, glasses, food, utility bills, and medication costs.
Throughout the year, we host volunteers from across that country ,that make much needed repairs to homes of the elderly, handicapped, and unemployed, ranging from new roofs to wheelchair ramps.
New Light Programs
We provide support services for adults taking job training at Tennessee College of Applied Technology and those wishing to go to college. We help with transportation, fees, tuition, books, testing and baby-sitting.
Good Earth Garden
We provide vegetable seeds, plants and fertilizer to more than 350 families each year so they can grow their own food. We also have a garden we share with needy families during harvest.
Our store, located in our headquarters building, provides reasonably priced clothing and household items to hundreds of families each year. Proceeds from the sale of these donated items help overset a portion of our overhead.
