Grove Christian Outreach Center maintains an Outreach Center in the Grove area of James City County in order to minister to they physical and spiritual needs of the poor and disadvantaged in the community. They provide food, clothing, financial assistance, school supplies, holiday food baskets, Christmas baskets, shoebox gifts for kids, and a blessing room for families.
Due to a mishandling of my family’s application, admitted to by the outreach, My Granddaughter was excluded from the Christmas shoe box program and meeting Santa. The staff was rude and condescending especially the executive director bordering on abusive . And the office manager was to a lesser extent rude and condescending. They refused to fix the issue or issue a proper apology that was not victim blaming.
With a team of staff and volunteers who are truly passionate about delivering the love of Christ to their neighbors, the work getting done by the Center is making an impact every day. Whether nourishing neighbors through the food pantry efforts or ensuring programs are in place for clothing and financial assistance, the Center continues to be a blessing for many.
The staff and volunteers are always so friendly and kind. They really go above and beyond to help. Grove is such a blessing to our community!
Grove Christian Outreach Center is a tremendous blessing to the Grove Community, where All are Welcome! They provide many choices of dry and can goods, deli, dairy, fresh fruits and vegetables to their patrons. They offer a clothing closet filled with quality donated items. The Center not only focuses on food and clothing but offers many other programs for Grove residents by partnering with other Agencies. The Center operates with a small caring devoted staff and many very dedicated kind volunteers. They love and connect with the people of the community they serve. I have always been treated with that love and kindness.
