Pet Food Collection
We need your help!  Missions is collecting dry dog and cat food for the Advent Festival to take to individuals on Meals on Wheels with pets. After Meals on Wheels volunteers noticed a growing number of clients giving their food away to their furry friends, they started working with shelters and other pet groups to add free pet food to their meal deliveries. Those programs, relying on donations and volunteers, have continued to grow in popularity as seniors began eating better, staying healthier and worrying less about feeding their pets.  Just bring the food by the church and set it beside the blue bins.
