Deacons Non-Food Drive
The Deacon’s have become aware of a growing need in our community. Did you know that people on certain types of asssitance, such as food stamps, can’t use it for everyday items like toothpaste, kleenex, toilet paepr? To that end, we are starting a non-food drive to collect items. Care products we are collecting are; toilet paper, deodorant, bodywash/soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, laundry soap, band aids, antibiotic cream, dish soap, paper towels, and muti purpose cleaners. Bins are available in Fellowship Hall and the church entryway Thank you.
