(St. Louis, MO) Detroit residents will come together this Saturday, August 18th, for an event called Together We are Better that aims to provide basic necessities to the people of Detroit. This event is sponsored by Hand of Hope, the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries, along with Word of Faith Christian Center's outreach Operation Blessing. This event will include distribution of diapers and food to local residents, along with free haircuts, face painting, and an inflatable jump house. Activities will begin at 3:00 p.m. at Word of Faith Christian Center.

Joyce Meyer Ministries' Hand of Hope crafted the Together We are Better events as a way to provide local communities with basic necessities, as well as create a fun day for the entire family.
