Virginia Reed Food Drive
Ways to Give to the Food Drive – We have three easy ways to share the bounty with the hungry in our community:
- Bring food to the donation points anytime you come to church (baskets are located in the chapel, the parlor, east door, north door, south door). Any non-perishable canned or dry food item is welcome! (No glass containers please.)
- Make a financial contribution to the Virginia Reed Food Drive on the Harvesters Community Food Network website.
- Make a financial contribution to the church and mark your check or giving envelope “food drive.” You may place these gifts in the offering plate during worship.
Donate the “item of the month” to the basket in the church parlor or make a financial gift to the Collection Connection. Read The Christian for information about the items being collected throughout the year. Past examples include toothbrushes for Nicaragua, personal hygiene items for Christmas stockings, and yarn for the knitting ministry.
