First Church of Holtville Hosts Fundraiser

HOLTVILLE — The First Church of Holtville is hosting a fundraiser to purchase a freezer and storage cabinet to assist with the storage of donated food items that are distributed monthly to less fortunate Holtville residents.

The monthly food-distribution events are held in partnership with the Imperial Valley Food Bank and were originally hosted by United Methodist Church of Holtville members and volunteers.

The recent closure of the local Methodist Church prompted the subsequent incorporation of the First Church of Holtville, which has allowed the monthly events to continue, said Becky Miller, church member and event organizer. 

Event organizers hope to purchase either a standup or chest freezer and a storage cabinet for its purposes, or possibly have the two items donated, Miller said.

Tax exempt donations can be made out to the First Church of Holtville, P.O. Box 788, Holtville, CA 92250.

For more information about the fundraiser, please contact Becky Miller at Bmiller236@aol.com, or the church at fch2021@yahoo.com
