This past week, Vick, Shirley, Janice & Tom
served over 650 take out meals.
We are running low on provisions and need canned goods, fruit cups, packaged sandwich meats, sliced cheese, hot dogs, bread, boxes of individually packaged chips, crackers & cookies and bottled water.
Drop off between 8:30 and 10:00 or 12:00 – 1:00. Or if you have a large shipment, we could arrange to meet you
