Blessings to Share: Food Drive on Sept. 12th & Sept. 13th

  • Jelly
  • Canned fruit/vegetables
  • Snacks/crackers
  • Chunky soups or stew
  • Canned tuna
  • Cereal (hot or cold)

In order to maintain appropriate physical distancing and traffic flow:

  • Following the instruction of the volunteer directing traffic, please proceed to the collection vehicle.

  • Please wear a mask.
  • Please exit via Main Street, or through the back parking lot.
