Teaming with the various mission efforts available through HPPC is a great way to make friends while serving Christ and helping others. Anyone is invited to join a service team. Regular projects include collections of baby items for migrant workers, underwear and socks for Clothes to Kids, food for End 68 Hours of Hunger, and gifts for needy children during Advent. Teams assist First Presbyterian Church by serving breakfast to the homeless on the first Saturday of each month.   If you wish to help , please email  hppcmissions@gmail.com or call the church office.

A partnership with Thornwell’s Building Families program helps us serve the community in new ways.  Our building serves as “home base” for a specially trained social worker who provides services to families who are struggling; folks like grandparents as parents, children in families involved in divorce, or children in a newly blended family are some examples.

We host the pantry and packing facility for End 68 Hours of Hunger, Tampa. Each weekend, Tampa families receive food to help them stay fed during the nearly 68 hours between free school meals. The program has no employees and is supported completely by volunteers. A school employee delivers the food to the individual students in need. We can always use volunteers to donate food or to help in the packing and distribution of the food. Click here for more information about this.

Members also support, with their offerings, charities that focus on providing basic needs to people who need a hand up.  These include Faith Cafe, Metropolitan Ministries, BethEl Mission, Meals on Wheels, Feeding America Tampa Bay and Judeo Christian Health Clinic.  For the past six years, we have supported a nursing student in Haiti through Haiti Nursing Foundation.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about any of these mission opportunities, please send an email to: hppcmissions@gmail.com
