Liquid Church Responds to COVID-19 Pandemic by Distributing Easter Baskets Filled With Toilet Paper, Sanitizers, Food, Baby Supplies, and Household Essentials To Neighbors-In-Need
PARSIPPANY, NJ - April 2020 – Liquid Church, one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing churches, has partnered with Convoy Of Hope, a disaster relief ministry, to get emergency supplies to families in crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A tractor-trailer shipment with 26,000 pounds of relief supplies arrived just in time for distribution on Easter Weekend. Emergency Relief Kits in the form of Easter Baskets and Easter Boxes will be available for Saturday pickup and Easter Sunday delivery.
“Here in New Jersey we find ourselves in the epicenter of this pandemic, but we want to spread hope faster than COVID-19,” said Tim Lucas, lead pastor and founder of Liquid Church. “That’s why we’ve created Emergency Relief Kits in the form of Easter Baskets. Traditional Easter baskets would be filled with chocolate bunnies and jellybeans, but our baskets are packed with crucial essentials - toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, non-perishable food, and relief supplies that can help families impacted by this crisis.”
Liquid Church has turned its facility at 299 Webro Road in Parsippany into a storehouse with pallets of supplies filling the warehouse and lining the halls. Boxes of diapers, wipes, bleach, toilet paper, paper towels, hygiene kits, bottled water, spaghetti and sauce, cereals, and much more are piled high. A small team of Liquid Church staff are organizing those essential items to create Easter Baskets and Boxes of supplies to meet the needs of families of various sizes.
Any member of the community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and in need of an Emergency Relief Kit is welcome to receive supplies as part of the Easter Weekend Outreach. The first step is going online to www.LiquidChurch.com/Hope where individuals can submit an “Emergency Relief Request.” They can then pick up their Relief Kit on Saturday between 9am - 12pm at Liquid Church.
“On Saturday people can drive-up in their car, we’ll drop the basket or box of supplies in their trunk, and then they drive-off. No muss, no fuss, and no contact. On Easter, we celebrate how Jesus sacrificed himself to love and serve us, so it’s a blessing to serve our community this way,” added Lucas. “For senior citizens or those quarantined at home we have a special plan in place. Our team will make doorstep deliveries on Easter Sunday. We want our vulnerable neighbors to know that God sees them, so we’ll deliver hope right to their doorstep!”
