The Importance of Giving Back

Published : Thursday, March 3, 2016 | 4:49 PM

No matter how tough you think your life is there’s always someone who has to face challenges that are even tougher than yours. Giving back has a strong meaning – you give and nothing happens. No benefits for you, no recognition, no reward. Your biggest and sole reward is the realization that you’ve made a significant change in someone’s life; and if not “significant” then a positive change nevertheless.

Pasadena Presbyterian Church realizes the importance of giving back and through its “Take 6” program provides hot meals to more than 125 people each Sunday after morning and evening worship. These meals fill a critical need for these people, many of whom are homeless. The church also provides “take-away sacks” for homeless people who come on Sunday and during the week to the church office.

Your input makes this ministry possible.You may donate money, or any of the following: granola bars, power bars, power drinks, small bottled water or canned food with easy-to-open pop-tops. Members of PPC also serve a meal once a month at Union Station with PPC providing the food.

Your cash donations help make these vital programs continue. If you wish to make a donation you can do so through PPC’s Online Giving program at or by check payable to PPC (mark “Food Ministry” in the memo line) mailed to the church office.
