Life Assembly's Mobile Food Pantry
On Saturday, July 26, Life Assembly held their fourth annual Mobile Food Pantry in Mt. Juliet. They were able to serve 127 local families (515 individuals, 240 of whom were children) with shopping carts full of free food, free school supplies, and free haircuts for the kids! We are so happy and honored to have been a part of such an amazing event!

We are excited to have partnered with the Romanian Orphan Ministries. All of the items are handmade by the Romanian orphaned girls of the Beauty from Ashes center. Some of the girls' creations include cards, hats and accessories, and jewelry. These girls are being given a very real fighting chance, and whenever you invest in a Beauty from Ashes product, you are a part of that!
