Food Basket Update
68 pounds of items were delivered to the Food Basket on Tuesday! Continue to keep our Food Basket on your mind as you grocery shop. They are in need of dried pinto beans, cereal, pasta, oatmeal, feminine hygiene items, personal cleanliness items such as soap, shampoo and deodorant, and baby items such as diapers, wipes and food. As well, they are always in need of bags and egg cartons.

Baskets are in the hallway and items are delivered weekly. Many thanks to everyone for all you do to help feed our neighbors!
Spring Break Box Packing
Feb. 18 at the Food Basket
On February 18th, 2:00-4:00 p.m., St. Timothy’s is scheduled to volunteer at the Food Basket helping pack Spring Break boxes for their clients. All are welcome! (1 Wesley Drive, Clute, TX)
Volunteers Needed
Food Pickup

The Food Basket needs volunteers for one day a week - Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday to do a food pick up at Kroger (by 10:00 a.m. on those days). It includes the produce department, dairy, bakery, deli and checking the red barrels for bags. If you are interested, Laurie could go with you on the first run to show you where the areas are to pick up. A truck is a must or large SUV. Without volunteers their ministry would falter as it takes many hands to serve. Please call 979-388-0024 for more information.

Shopper Assistants

The Food Basket distributes groceries on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, 8:00-10:00, (or when the last client is done.) We could use a couple more people to be shopping assistants. Either day is good, but the need is greater on Saturday when there are more clients. Contact Sondra with questions, or just show up around 8.
Please give a warm St. Timothy’s welcome to our newest members Steve and Renee Cook who live in Surfside.
We are pleased to welcome our new Sexton, Phyllis Wells.
