The Alliance of Warren Evangelicals (A.W.E.) has a group of dedicated people supporting the food pantry they host every Monday morning at Warren City Hall.

Now this army of volunteers has a leader.

“Stan has done a world of good,” said Jim Thompson, A.W.E’s founder, referring to Stan Turner, senior pastor of New City Church in Lincoln Park who was hired as lead coordinator for the nonprofit group.

Thanks to a grant provided by Forgotten Harvest’s Agency Capacity Grant Program, AWE and more than 50 other partner agencies are getting the help they need to increase their reach and effectiveness.

The grant money stems from Forgotten Harvest commitment to help communities work together to end hunger.
