“THREE MEALS A DAY”
Can You Help Us Provide These To Someone Less Fortunate?
For the month of April, we will be collecting foods that will help to provide three meals a day. I would ask, if you are able, please consider donating one or more of the items listed below. These items will help to stock our church food pantry as well as support the Samaritan Care Food Pantry.
