Each month volunteers from North Point Church partake in projects to help the community and local organizations who are helping those in need.
"North Point Church is committed to making a difference here at home and around the world,” says Angie MacDonald, ImpACT director for North Point Church. “Through our ImpACT initiative, we're partnering with Convoy of Hope and working together to provide nutritious meals to children in need."
