As Told to Good360 by Hosanna Lutheran Church
HEART is a ministry of Hosanna Church that demonstrates God’s love by serving communities in need. HEART is a Jesus-centered ministry operating through a network of churches, ministries and businesses to build relationships in the community. We are a locally and nationally known Kingdom Distribution Center providing building resources, housewares, food and prayer to rebuild hearts and homes. HEART is focused on both immediate and long-term care.
Throught Good360 we received a wide range of goods, including pressure cookers, home goods, baby items, boots and more. These goods fulfill basic needs to individuals in the greater Minneapolis area. We serve a diverse community that includes low-income families, the homeless, fire victims and more. We host events twice a month where individuals who have been vetted by ourselves or partnering ministries can come and receive needed items.
The donated items from Good360 were also used for a barbeque with the purpose of mending the community. More than 2,000 individuals attended and interacted with members of the Minneapolis Police Department during this relationship-building event.
Outside of Minneapolis, our team has been supporting the community of Vidor, TX in rebuilding lives and homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey. After Tropical Storm Imelda last month, most homes experienced devastating flooding for the second time and lost any progress they had been making. We sent goods to this community along with members of our team to help distribute items to those who have lost everything again.
Since we began to receive a regular supply of Good360 donations, we have seen an increase in ministries and agencies wanting to partner with us because of the great supplies we are able to distribute. People can’t afford these items, so to be able to supply them with really great product to help them live better is such a blessing.
