SUNDAY FOOD PANTRY OFFERING – GOING STRONG
The local food pantries have been really appreciative of our food basket offerings. The women at Troy’s Helping Hand Center were so happy to see the bags of groceries that came to their back door last week!
Our next offering will be delivered to the Peterborough Food Pantry. The pantry stopped accepting donations for a good while at the beginning of the COVID shut-down, but has since resumed accepting them. It will be good to be able to help them regain their volunteer donation base! The director of the pantry has said that the pantry will be concentrating on helping to build the holiday foodstuffs supply for people. Canned cranberry sauce and vegetables, bagged turkey stuffing , boxed mashed potatoes, nuts, boxed baking products, spices, soup broths, etc are all good ideas for donations.
Many thanks to everyone who quietly drops off a bag of food! You give true meaning to the idea of feeding His sheep! Blessings on all!
