BI-ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE
It's that time again!
Sunday, October 26
The University District Food Bank counts on us to help stock its shelves twice a year. Our donations of food and cash help to feed children of all ages, homeless teens and adults, the working poor, and seniors on small fixed incomes.
There are special needs for personal hygiene items, disposable diapers and hearty canned soups, but they can always use protein items like veggie chili/soups, peanut butter, canned beans, and tuna, and baby food as well as pet food. The need is increasing and donations have been decreasing so any and all contributions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks to John Hushagen, we can deposit our food donations in his truck on Sunday, October 26 or you can bring donations anytime prior and leave them in the Narthex. If you prefer, checks can be made out to University District Food Bank and placed in the offering, or delivered or mailed to the office.
