Fall Food Drive

 

FALL FOOD DRIVE

Families are gathering to renew their ties and to gobble up turkey, dressing, and apple pies. Yet, some neighbors may have pantries that are bare. They live on a "shoestring" budget and feel despair. Our fall food drive is a great way to show we care. Keitha and Gary Simpson, operators of the Marysville Food Pantry, relate that the number of families seeking food assistance continues to increase, serving approximately 300 families. They appreciate any donations, so let us be generous!

Needed Items: canned fruit and vegetables, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, Hamburger Helper, macaroni and cheese, stuffing mix, rice, canned meats (tuna, chicken, spam, etc.), peanut butter, powdered milk, cooking oil, mustard, catsup, mayonnaise, salad dressing (no glass please) and coffee.

Please NO GLASS and check expiration dates on your donated items.

Paper bags will be handed out after each service on November 4th and 11th. Please fill the bags and return them to the BFLC closet near the gym by Sunday, November 18th. The Quake kids will be shopping and adding their food items as they repack our bags for easier transporting. Thanks, Quake!! We will take the filled bags to the food pantry on November 21st. Trucks, vans, or car drivers are needed to transport the food. It is a quick and fun trip around the corner. Call Joan at 937-644-9555 if you can help with the transportation.
