Since January of 2017, Pastor Ken Jung and the Pathway Community Church in Pleasanton has partnered with BACS’ Valley Wellness Center to support our community.
Pathway Community Church is a neighbor of Valley, and wanted to help support our participants around food and nutrition. The Pathway community began making weekly deliveries of pastries and bread, but soon became a monthly lunch catered by Pathway members! Volunteers from Pathway cook and serve the lunch, while raising awareness and learning about mental health.
The Pathway Community Church have continued to step up their generosity, and are now donating enough food to also support our South County Wellness Center in Fremont, and our Hedco Wellness Center in Pleasanton!
Over the holiday season, the Pathway Community Church donated a Christmas tree, and brought a holiday luncheon to Valley Wellness Center.
When asked “why Valley”, Pastor Ken Jung said, “I believe in creating relationships in our community, the community in which the church resides, and Valley Wellness, being literally 2 blocks away, was an obvious choice. Because of the work being done at Valley Wellness, and the participants that are being served here, Pathway is dedicated to nourishing and enhancing the relationship.”
We are so grateful to the Pathway Community Church, and to Pastor Ken Jung, for their generosity and community service!
