Calling all members,
In the past we were lucky that the church had a large bin and ongoing food drive program. Terry Pergentile did a great job promoting this and the membership responded with a positive attitude.
There is no ongoing program that I know of where we now meet but that does not mean the need is not there.
I would like to ask of you to please bring in something for a food drive on Monday December 4th. I will see that it gets to Neighbour to Neighbour so that those in less fortunate circumstances
will have a chance for some much needed assistance, especially with Christmas so near.
Please be as generous as you can afford to be.
Below is from their website. These types of Items are healthier so they can promote better health in their clients.
We also usually tend to think only of food in a food drive but there are other things as well some cannot afford – see Other Needed Items:
