FOOD DRIVE Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020. We are back by popular demand! Bring your non-perishable food items to the Good Shepherd parking lot
11am to noon. We get to say hello to each other and have at least a brief catch-up, while helping our neighbors get by. Food Banks across the nation are down in supply, and demand is up uP UP!
And this time it's a "Twofer" - we have our food drive for Manna, and our partner in liturgy,
Transfiguration Parish, is holding a drive for items to fill supply packs for the homeless at the same time. Transfiguration is a partner parish with Samaritan Ministry, which most of have heard of. There will be a guest preacher from Samaritan ministry at our liturgy this Sunday, to tell us about their work. Suggestions of what to give to Transfiguration for these packs will be given in this bulletin. In general, think what you would want to bring for spending a week sleeping outdoors. Socks are the number one request, and portable snack items are helpful -- cheese and cracker packs, raisins, meal bars, etc. - a light blanket, rain hoods, etc. You can drop off the items at Good Shepherd and we will take them to Transfiguration, or you can bring them to Transfiguration yourself between 12-1 on Saturday. Their address is 13925 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring, MD 20904.
As always, your support is greatly treasured! I am proud to be a part of this parish that is so loving in action! Thank you! Deacon Kathryn.
