Canby Cares was a great success

7/11/10 07:41

The third annual Canby Cares was once again a huge success.  We were able to serve 90 patients in our Dental clinic and 74 patients in our Vision clinic.  Over 900 meals were served while the Canby Alliance worship team entertained our guests with live music.  The weather was perfect and 336 volunteers  came together to love on our Canby community.  One of my most precious memories was seeing an ex-gang member, a man currently living in his car and a dentist all working together to alleviate the pain of a client.  All the thousands of hours of work paid off as we exhibited the love of God to Canby by following the example of Jesus Christ, - healing the sick and feeding the hungry.
