Pastor Jerry Lubrano, Lead Pastor Destiny Church, 2322 11th Ave. SE, Ruskin has announced that the Spanish Department of the church under the leadership of Pastor David and Sonia Machiavelo distributed 210 free backpacks recently for children who would be starting school unprepared otherwise. Families expressed great appreciation for the help and some surprise that the backpack was a gift.
Destiny Church does various community projects such as the backpacks throughout the year. In November a major food distribution ministry is being planned to help local food banks when they are most stressed by the holiday season.
