fpOur food donations made a huge difference to families in need 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.  We collected donations in November for the Good News Rescue Mission but will not collect in December.  In January look for a cart parked near the front door of the Elks.  We will be happy to take your donations.
