Local churches and synagogues provide support to Gainesville Community Ministry in many ways. Some of these ways are 
  • Sending volunteers
  • Providing board members in relation to the size of the congregation
  • Making regular financial contributions--in fact many churches find that GCM services lessen the strain in providing emergency assistance
  • Participating in Project 5000
  • Holding food drives (often at Lent or other appropriate Holy Days)
  • Conducting winter blanket drives
  • Conducting drives for new socks and underwear
If your church would like to participate in one of these ways, then please call the GCM Director at 372-8162, or email him at
