The Caring Hearts, Giving Spirits Food Drive is this Sunday, April 18, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. . . . another opportunity to contribute to our Caring Hearts, Giving Spirits initiative as we continue to assist Café of Life and Interfaith Charities in helping people in need. 
Cafe of Life is specifically in need of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent pods, diapers (size 4, 5 and 6) as well as diaper wipes, deodorant, dental needs and personal care products.
Interfaith Charities needs any non-perishable food such as cereals, canned meats, fruits, vegetables, soups, rice and beans.
There will be one collection point near the Golf Pro Shop at the Clubhouse. It will be clearly marked with red balloons and easily accessible.
Please remember as you are cleaning out pantries in preparation for the trip home, donations can always be dropped off at the collection chest upstairs in the Fitness Center if the Sunday drives do not work for your schedule.
