THANKS to all 1st ANGEL VOLUNTEERS! The Mission Committee wishes to thank all the volunteers who helped make the Easter food giveaway a success. If you helped label bags, setup the tables & arranged food, bagged food or helped register & move bags on carts to family cars on Friday and Saturday April 11th & 12th, your service was appreciated. Your efforts help make this Easter a bit better for 30 families.
HUNGER ISN’T A SEASON BUT A YEAR-ROUND EVENT! Helpers are needed every first Thursday of the month (May 1st) at 10:00 a.m. to help unload trucks & setup for Food Giveaway, and every first Friday (May 2nd) at 9:00 a.m. to bag and distribute groceries. For information about helping with this ministry, please contact Bob or Connie Segna at 419-353-0873.
The Food Pantry is always running low on ALL types of non-perishable food and clean plastic/brown grocery bags, so PLEASE keep bringing in your donations! If you wish to give a monetary donation be sure to note "Food Distribution" in the memo field of the check so that the funds are credited to this effort.
"I was hungry, you gave me food. I was thirsty, you gave me drink."
~ Matthew 25:35
