Food Donations - August 2017
Food donations to support our local Food Bank can be brought to the church on any Sunday during the month and put in either of the two collection boxes in the front lobby.
While you are welcome to bring any type of non-perishable food item(s) you wish, this month we are selecting TOILETRIES. Although they are not actually food items, they are necessities. For Aug. we have set a goal of 200 items including tooth paste, tooth brushes, hand soap, Kleenex, toilet tissue, deodorant, hand lotions (unscented preferred), etc., to be collected by Sunday, Aug. 27.
Your donations are greatly appreciated by the Food Bank and its recipients.
