During the summer months, the Food Pantry commodities become sparse while the need for help does not diminish. With children out of school, the food needs of families can be even greater. UM4GI plans to help replenish the Food Pantry shelves throughout the month of August.
Each week we are asking the three congregations to contribute a different type of food or household item (including baby items) based on the following schedule:
- August 4-10: Canned fruits and vegetables
- August 11-17: Protein items such as canned meats, beans, and peanut butter
- August 18-24: Grains such as rice, pasta, oatmeal, and breakfast cereal
- August 25-31: Paper goods including paper towels, toilet paper, and facial tissue
Please look for the Food Pantry display at First.Faith UMC and Trinity UMC and help us to restock the shelves. If you have questions, call LeEllen Haynes or any UM4GI church office.
