Volunteers distributed 17.5 tons of food, and professionals provided eye exams, teeth cleanings, and employers were also on hand accepting job applications. Stylists from Paris Beauty College of Concord, including Andrea Mitchell, below left, gave free haircuts to many people, like 10-year-old Robert Collins.

This was the third time that Calvary Temple has organized a large-scale outreach in conjunction with Convoy of Hope, an international Christian organization that provides disaster relief, meals and tools to help farmers produce their own food.
