FOOD PANTRY ITEMS NEEDED!
Every summer, food collections slow down so our food pantry is in need of any nonperishable food supplies and toiletry items you can provide.   We can especially use cereal, pasta sauce, peanut butter and jelly. Any soups, vegetables, pasta, tuna, beans and mac and cheese are always welcome. Toilet paper, soaps and paper towels are needed also.   Help our food pantry through the summer.   You can leave your items in the baskets outside the church office.   Please, no expired items.   Thank you for your support of this longstanding ministry !
