Fall/Winter Food Drive
Although many businesses continue to be shut down during the COVID-19 quarantine period, our local food banks are still open and operating. More people than ever are in need of food due to the loss of jobs during the pandemic. Of course, due to the new “social distancing” rules that are in place, we (and many other churches) are unable to collect food donations at our weekly Sunday services. This has resulted in a severe food shortage at the food pantries.
