Don’t forget, if you are signed up to provide flowers for Sunday morning, you can also provide a basket of food in lieu of flowers. On Monday, we’ll take the basket of food and donate it to “Hand to Hand Pantry”. Bonita Schaal is also coordinating an opportunity for friends to give their loose change (and dollars) throughout the month and she will use that to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables for “Hand to Hand” Pantry.
If you or a group of you are able to prepare and deliver food to Leslie’s House for their evening meal (second Tuesday evening of each month), the sign up sheet is on the bulletin board just outside the Fellowship Hall. Volunteers are needed for the next few months.
