John Benson: "We are here to set the example of helping our community by using people who want to give their physical or professional talents. We find that when hundreds of people help in these outreaches it does not become a burden on any one person."

Community organizations such as The Rock Church in Temecula are stark examples of utilizing the strength of all segments of the community to drive new initiatives. Distributing food to the needy is an issue that is being tackled head on. John Benson is quoted saying “We are here to set the example of helping our community by using people who want to give their physical or professional talents. We find that when hundreds of people help in these outreaches it does not become a burden on any one person. People want to help because they are not over taxed and they feel good about doing what is right in their community.”
The economy has continued to be a drag on the poor and the lack of jobs has been slow in coming to this segment of the population. Waiting for the government to do something has not been the American way, so community groups are filling in the gap. At the Rock Church's Love Active community outreach program there are representatives from all racial, political, and economic segments standing in line to help each other accomplish the task they were assigned. For some the goal was to feed, so they fed. For others the goal was to wash and cut hair, so it was done. Still others helped with healthcare issues.
With numerous projects under their belt this church seems to have cracked the nut on how to develop bridges and helping hands across racial and economic boundaries.
For information on this community outreach activity, contact the The Rock Church in Temecula, CA. The program is lead by John Benson. The Rock Church has been involved with this outreach project for the last eight years and has given out almost one million pounds of food in the course of this program.
