2022 Charity Event


Time to start collecting items for the Goshen Rally! Each year, our generous Montana owners have supported a local Goshen charity, Church Community Services (CCS). CCS was created 54 years ago as a program to address the issue of poverty in the Elkhart/Goshen community. CCS is a faith-based agency, with over 50 churches working together helping local people weather life’s storms (and pandemics) and build more secure futures through emergency assistance and intensive job and life-skills training. Along with training, they support a large food bank, have vegetable gardens and have a store that offers numerous items. Their website is if you would like to learn more. They also sell gift baskets, soup/cookie mixes and warm hand-made mittens.

They are in specific need of the following items:
• canned meats: tuna, ham, spam, chicken
• starches: pasta, rice, hamburger helper, boxed potatoes
• hot and cold cereals, oatmeal, pancake mix, syrup
• peanut butter and jelly are always favorites

While not listed, they can always use:
• Diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, body wash
• Toilet paper, soap, body wash, shampoo, deodorant
• Feminine hygiene products
• Toothpaste and toothbrushes
• Monetary or gift card (Meijer) donations would also be greatly appreciated!

We will be collecting these items during Rally week and will have a clearly marked area for donations.

Thanks in advance for your participation and here’s to another very successful giving campaign! Just for reference in 2018 we had 565 lbs., 2019 1020 lbs., 2021 2721 lbs. of food and personal care items! The challenge for 2022 is on!!

Reminder that donations will be accepted during Rally week, so if you don't have time to shop/gather items or don't want to travel with extra weight, you can always do a little shopping when you get to Goshen. There is Kroger, Walmart, ALDI, Meijer, and more stores for your convenience. I know that is what we did last year and was able to get some "heavy" items from the list provided by Mary.

Such a great cause and look forward to seeing how successful we will be this year.

Thanks Mary for organizing this on behalf of us all!
