I have had a few people call me regarding non-perishable food items following Hurricane Irma. They bought extra supplies in preparation and now want to give them to someone in need. They were passed on to families in need last week.
If you have any food items that you would like to donate, I will be collecting them for the next few weeks.
You can drop items off at the church office during business hours, Tuesday and Thursday 8:30-5:00 or Wednesday and Friday 8:30-4:00. You can also put them in the Women of Heart cabinet before or after any service times or bible studies. Lastly, you can drop them off at my house (in the Tyrone area of St. Pete). Reply to this email if you’d like my exact address.
Depending on how many items we receive, I will deliver the extras to a food pantry in Pinellas Park. You may see this communicated to the entire congregation soon as well.
It has been so wonderful to see the generosity of our community and people are so appreciative of the help. Thank you Cindy for the idea!
The generous will themselves be blessed,
for they share their food with the poor.
