Healing Community

Whether it’s giving back to local charities, sponsoring community events, or participating in volunteer efforts, NHC is dedicated to doing good in our community.

Community Events

Annual Turkey Give-Away

Since 2016, NHC has held an annual turkey giveaway for families in need. Families get a frozen turkey along with sides and desserts. This event has given out over 900 turkeys. In 2018 NHC also donated turkeys to the Morro Bay Monday Night Community Dinner at the Vets Hall on the Monday before Thanksgiving, as well as to Rock Harbor Christian Fellowship Church, 40 Prado Homeless Services Center, 5 Cities Homeless Coalition, and SLO Food Bank.

Annual Toy Drive

Since 2016, NHC has held an annual Christmas toy giveaway for families in need. Thousands of toys have been donated. In 2018, NHC arrived at KSBY’s studio with a truck containing thousands of toys for their final day of the Season of Hope toy drive.
