ONE CAN AT A TIME

Food Pantry Donations


Please bring your donations to our May meeting. We won't be collecting in April at the fashion show. Our food donations made a huge difference last year. We would like to continue helping hungry children and families that need a bit of help from food pantries at the end of the month. In addition to canned goods and other food, personal care items are always helpful. Brown paper bags and plastic bags are also needed. Bring them in as well.  We donated 2 trunkloads of food to People of Progress in March.
