Pacific Union ACS Collaborates with Adventist Health to Bring
N-95 Masks to Glendale’s Home Health Teams
Pacific Union Adventist Community Services Director Charlene Sargent helped load up 42 cases of N-95 masks for Adventist Health’s home health personnel in Glendale, Calif., on May 4. The pallet of cases contained more than 2,000 masks, which were delivered May 5 in Glendale. “I have had the masks in my warehouse because they are one of the items we put in 5-gallon buckets of cleaning supplies we provided to disaster survivors,” Sargent shared. “I was very happy that Adventist Community Services was able to provide much needed masks to Adventist Health to help keep their staff and patients safer during this challenging time.”

Food for the Town
Food for the Town, an initiative led by The Veg Hub and six Oakland-area churches, is engaging the community with compassion. “We recognize that many families, including those with children, are unable to have healthy food during this crisis due to their financial challenges,” said Chef G. W. Chew, director of The Veg Hub ministry. At the Grand Advent church on April 25, volunteers packed 100 boxes of healthy groceries, including beans, grains, fruits, and vegetables. In addition to the NCC, several food distribution companies supported the effort. The next distribution event will be May 30.
