We are collecting canned and dry good items for Nourish Food Bank. The children of our Sunday school are asked to bring an item on their birthday.
Because of the economic times there is an increased need. We are asking each person to bring an item to donate every time you come to worship. We would like to be able to donate at least 500 items each month.
NOURISH FOOD BANK We are so thankful for those of you at Grace who are giving to this worthwhile organization to assist those need help. They currently need the following items for holiday meals: instant potatoes/potatoes au gratin, canned green beans/corn, cream of mushroom soup, canned yams/sweet potatoes, gravy mix, pie filling, canned pineapple, baking items (flour, sugar, oil etc.), Jell-O, broth, fried onions, cranberry sauce, canned meats (tuna, spam, chicken and ham). During the holidays, NOURISH provides their clients with Thanksgiving turkeys and Christmas hams plus all the sides to provide a robust dinner and dessert. You can bring items to the church and we will take them over to the food bank for you. They will also take the sample size toiletries you get when you stay at a hotel. Thank you for your consideration and donations! NOTE: Please DO NOT donate items that have been opened or have expired as we will not accept them.
SPECIAL DRIVE FOR PORTICO They need the following items: baby food, baby formula, baby toiletries (shampoo, body wash, lotion and oil), size 4, 5, and 6 diapers, new bibs, new baby bottles, and gently used summer clothes for newborns through size 2T. If you would like to contribute one or more of these items, place them in the tote you will find in the fellowship hall. Anita Schepers will be delivering these items to Portico. If you have any questions see Anita.
