Non-Profit ‘Teamwork Missions’ Gives Back To First Responders

Teamwork Missions held an event called ‘Project Give Back’ in December as a gesture of gratitude for the Hillsborough County First Responders. The organization Teamwork Missions, which customizes mission trips for churches partnered with Mission BBQ in Brandon and the Winn Dixie in Sun City to make the Christmas holiday special for Sun City’s Fire Station 28.

The non-profit delivered Mission BBQ for three consecutive days to cover the three shifts for dinner. Additionally, it gifted each shift of first responders with ham and turkey to enjoy later.

John Saunders, a board member with Teamwork Missions who also volunteered, said, “We wanted to do this as a way to say thank you for all they do for the community. I got to share with each shift—John 15:13 that says ‘Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’”
