Families are gathering to renew their ties and to gobble up turkey, dressing, and apple pies. Yet, some neighbors have bare pantries. They live on a "shoestring" 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. They appreciate any donations, so let's 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, condiments and coffee.
Please NO GLASS and check expiration dates on your donated items.
Paper bags will be handed out on November 12th and 19th. Please fill the bags and return them to the BFLC closet near the gym by 2:00pm on Tuesday, November 21st. 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 22nd after the Thanksgiving Eve worship service. 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.
