National Canned Food Month
 
Many area pantries see a decline in donations this time of year. For struggling families, canned foods are a great source of nutrition. Providing balanced meals with proteins, vegetables, and fruits.

To celebrate National Canned Food Month....
  • Pick up some canned foods on your next grocery store run. Go as a family to drop off your donations at a local pantry.
National Shut-in Visitation Day
February 11, 2020

Visiting someone who is shut-in and not able to get out and about can make such a positive impact on that person's life. 

February 11th is National Shut-In Visitation day. It's the perfect time to take the kids to visit with an elderly friend, family member or neighbor. Or perhaps visit an area nursing home.
