Blessfest is our annual homeless outreach Est. 2007. It’s held on Thanksgiving Day and it’s an event that was put forth to share the love of Jesus and demonstrate how we serve a God who loves and provides!
We host about 2,000-3,000 guests every year. Each guest has the opportunity to utilize our free services which include but are not limited to, a complete Thanksgiving meal- turkey and all the trimmings, medical, dental and vision services, haircuts, manicures, make-up, clothing, legal and social services, etc. We do this all in the name of Jesus!
But it doesn’t end there. Each guest leaves with a backpack stocked with personal hygiene items and toiletries. We will be preparing up to 1,300 backpacks. The backpacks are an essential part of our event and just a small token for our guests to remind them how we care about them and most importantly- SO DOES JESUS!
If you would like to join us in blessing our guests, you can donate or volunteer. Each month we focus on collecting specific items, but please feel free to donate what you can when it’s convenient for you. We also accept monetary donations to cover food, supplies, and rental costs that are for the sole purpose of benefitting our Blessfest guests.
Volunteer sign-ups will start in September. Please check back to sign-up.
T-shirts will also go on sale in September. Whether you wear your t-shirt at Blessfest or just want to contribute to the outreach, all t-shirt sale proceeds are used to bless our homeless community on Thanksgiving Day.
Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus! See you at Blessfest!
