POULSBO — Recording artist Phil Wickham’s April 26 concert at Gateway Fellowship raised nearly $7,500 for the church’s Operation Day of Hope.

Day of Hope — a day of clothing and food distribution and free dental, medical and legal services — is scheduled for Oct. 19.

“Through this effort, Gateway Fellowship is able to provide support to many that are struggling,” Community Outreach Pastor Dave Fischer said.

“Operation Day of Hope will provide numerous free services for over 1,000 people in our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our community in this way.”

Lead Pastor Tom Duchemin added, “During the past 12 months, Gateway Fellowship has distributed hundreds of complimentary grocery boxes and payment vouchers that are disbursed to help offset living expenses such as utilities, rent and fuel. As a result of the Wickham concert as well as future events, we will be in a great position to continue these programs through the summer and into the autumn months.”

Gateway Fellowship (GatewayFellowship.com) is located at 18901 8th Ave. NE, Poulsbo.
