GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) — As gas prices continue to rise, some senior citizens in North Central Florida are struggling to find ways to support themselves.

They need outside help, and the members of Deeper Purpose Community Church are bringing just that to their doorstep.

Pastor Adam Joy says Deeper Purpose is “not just a church that serves our members, but we are here to serve every member of the entire community.”

This is the message that precedes their awareness campaign for the elderly on Wednesday, June 1st.

They hope to reach seniors who have gone through difficult times and who “are on a fixed income. Most of them have very little income and by the time they pay their bills the truth is that they don’t have much left to spend on gas or food.

Church and community members in High Springs collected approximately $1,000 worth of groceries, ranging from canned goods to hygiene products.

And for the third year in a row, they decided to bring groceries to the homes of those in need amid unforeseen circumstances such as rising gas prices.

Deliveries will take place on Wednesday. To find out how to contribute, visit here.
