"We love volunteering with Morning Star! We bring our kids to help and it is such a great way to serve together as a family."

My kids love packing food boxes at Morningstar. It’s been their first real experience of being the hands and feet of Jesus - serving vulnerable people in our community and meeting a tangible need.

We are celebrating 10 years!
