Whenever there is a need in the county – be it food, money, labor or emotional support – Pastor Doug Alexander and his army of New Church Without Walls volunteers can always be counted on to move forward and lead the way.

This multicultural church has been at the forefront of community service for two decades. It has a history of helping the homeless and feeding the hungry. During the pandemic, the church held food distributions almost every week.

Each year during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, the church shifts into high gear to ensure those in need have food and supplies to enjoy the holidays.

As tradition dictates, the church is now preparing for its annual gifting events. But the church cannot do it without the continued help of the community.

Although much of the food comes from several sources – USDA, Feeding Tampa Bay, FarmShare, Community Food Bank, We Care and fresh produce from The Path – the need is so great that donations of non-perishable food and money to buy turkeys are needed.

Alexander’s heart is in the community and he overcomes obstacles every year to make sure no one goes hungry this holiday season, but he needs your support.

The generous Citrus County community has always helped keep the tradition going, and we expect that to happen this year as well. Alexander and his team have always been there to help the community; now is the time for the community to be there for him.
