Delivery of toiletry items collected during VBC 2017

The Church School classes and Youth Fellowship are collecting new full-sized or travel-size toiletry items through Oct. 21 for the Open Pantry’s Teen Parent Program. These donations will go directly to the moms and their children.  You can drop off your donations in your church school classes, at youth group, or at the Connection Point in Asbury Hall.  Adults are welcome also to drop off donations at the Connection Point.  All donations will be packed into reuseable cloth market bags and delivered to be used as "welcome" gifts when moms and their children enter the program. 

There is an on-going need for non-perishable food items for the Open Pantry food distribution program.  Items that are always welcomed include:  beans, canned fruits and vegetables, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, jelly, canned meats, and condiments. You are invited to bring these items when you come to worship and leave them in the totes at the back of the sanctuary.  Please join us in helping those who are food insecure in our community.
