Food Pantry Collections for The Center

Every Sunday is food pantry Sunday!  If you can, please purchase one or more items for the
food pantry each week when you shop.  Any non-perishable food, toiletry or monetary donation
will be accepted.  Each month we will have a suggested item that The Center always needs but
does not receive often. You can drop off your contribution to the church in the back of the
sanctuary or in fellowship hall.  Suggested item for May: feminine products are always in high
demand please donate in honor of women and Mother’s Day. If you are uncomfortable shopping
for these items but would like to help write a check and we will purchase them for The Center.
Thank you so much for helping our community feed and care for their families.  If you have any
questions,  please contact Julie Grothusen (563-505-4964 or
