On October 30, 2018. a team of 13 people from Crossroads headed out to New York City to serve with the Relief Bus. Above are some pictures from the trip. Along with handing out food from the Bus in areas such as East Harlem and Chelsea Park, the team also served at the Relief Center handing out clothes and snacks, and connecting individuals with services they needed (housing, employment, food, etc.) The team had a great time, made a lot of new friends, and was able to show the love of Christ to hundreds of people.
New York Relief Bus reaches out to poor and homeless in the NYC/New Jersey area by serving soup, but more importantly, meeting the homeless where they live with prayer and support. New York City Relief is BOOTS ON THE GROUND lead by an army of volunteers, 7,000 strong. The Relief Bus doesn’t just give a hand out, we also give a hand up by connecting the suffering to vital resources that can turn their lives around. Shelter, medical care, addiction recovery and job training are lifelines to many who are sinking. Our strategy is compassion and our mission is life transformation. “ The things we do… that others may live.” www.newyorkcityrelief.org
