HOPE South Florida continues to serve homeless families and veterans during this pandemic. Since March, they are regularly serving double the number of people. We want to help. During the season of Advent, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church will again be sponsoring a "Reverse" Advent Calendar, to which items are donated, instead of gifts or treats received, each day.
This year, we are focusing our "Reverse" Advent Calendar on food that is single-serve, shelf stable, and ready to eat. Please be mindful as you shop to buy only the items as listed here. If you need us to shop for you, monetary donations are welcome!
We will take all contributions and safely assemble bags of food to distribute at a future shared meal. You may drop off items at Sunday Drive-Up Communion or the Preschool Office (Weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Please call Cantor Kurt Schmidt at Zion with any questions - (954) 421-3146, Option 2.
