500-100-500 Project – May 2015

On May 8th, 2015, we will be holding our next OMMA Group Outreach Project!

We will be seeking to prepare 500+ snack packages for our local homeless community in support of Word on the Street ministry as well as 500+ hygiene kits for the people of Haiti that will be delivered via a summer mission trip through Catalyst Coach ministry.


If you feel led to supply any of the items below to help fill care packages for our area homeless men, women and children, or items for the hygiene kits for Haiti, please bring them to OMMA or leave them at the Avalon Church office. We hope to collect enough items for at least 500 of each.
