Community Outreach Partnerships

Food Collection

Each Sunday we collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the area food banks.   Monetary  donations usually go much further since the Food Banks often buy at reduced prices or in bulk. There is a grocery  basket and monetary box inside the sanctuary doors to the right as you enter the sanctuary on Sunday mornings where your donations may be placed.
