Community Outreach Events

community outreach events

Bell Shoals Church of Christ Benevolence Programs assist those in the community in need with these Community Outreach Events:


food pantry and hope closet clothing distribution

If you are in need of assistance we welcome you to come to the Hope Closet which operates on Tuesdays between 6:30 and 7:30 P.M., except those Tuesdays which fall on a holiday. The Hope Closet is located behind the main building at 2908 Bell Shoals Road. You will be given time to search for clothing and household items that meet your family's needs, and will be given a bag of groceries. We ask that each family only attend once a month for assistance.

back-2-school health fair and backpack giveaway

This annual event is held just before the school year starts. At the fair all family members enjoy free family fun and food that includes events like: Safety Stations, Bouncy Castles, Face Painting, Shaved Ice, Popcorn, St. Joseph's Children's Advocacy Center, Bagged Lunches and more! Students in elementary, middle or high school who are present at the event, are eligible to receive a backpack filled with school supplies. Pre-registering for the event is highly recommended to ensure your child receives a backpack. The event will be published on the home page at www.BellShoalsCoC.org. along with links to register. Register for the event HERE. You can also sign up to receive emails alerting you to our events at http://bit.ly/CommunityOutreachEvents.

holiday gift giveaway

This annual event is held on a Tuesday evening in December. This year the gift giveaway will be in the form of gift cards due to the fact we are no longer able to open the building for an evening holiday meal, and will take place on Tuesday December 19th, 2017. You can also sign up to receive emails at http://bit.ly/CommunityOutreachEvents.
