Frontline Mission in Wasilla truly lives out their motto, “A connecting place between the less fortunate and compassionate.” A visit with Pastor Manoj Ingle and his wife Vandana reveals their heart of compassion that is obvious and contagious. Their vision is to reach out not just to those who are less fortunate, but to those caring for the less fortunate as well.
Food is distributed at Frontline’s location on Thursdays and Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., but recently they have added the Frontline Cafe that’s now open for three hot meals during the week. Thursday and Friday lunch begins at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday dinner starts at 5:45 p.m. They also have a special Thanksgiving and Easter meal served around those holidays. Another community help is free clothing from the Frontline Closet that’s available on Fridays.
As with most non-profit organizations, volunteers and donations are always welcome. They are now part of the Pick, Click and Give program so donations from Alaska PFD’s are easy. Some do not know, but a high percentage of Alaskans struggle putting food on the table, and homeless folks especially struggle. Three meals a week plus the food pantry can be a Godsend.
But the attribute that really sets off Frontline Mission is the compassionate heart of Christ, encouraged through all their volunteers by the directors who role-model it every day. Stop by some time and get to know this ministry that reaches out and “gives a cup of cold water in Jesus name”! Check out more at: http://www.frontlinemission.org/
