Interfaith Ourreach Services Report

    Thank you to everyone that donated to Interfaith Outreach in February. We donated 158 pounds of food.  The one family that we gave groceries to that I keep thinking about was a young man and his five year-old son.  They had just moved here from Colorado.  He was very thankful for the groceries and I was told by the volunteers that sign clients in, that the little boy was very sweet and mannerly.  After I gave out the groceries I asked the counselor about the wife (mother) in this family.  He said he asked the young man and he said, "it's just me and my son."  Thank you very much for helping provide groceries for this family.

Interfaith Outreach Services

  Interfaith Ministries has now officially changed their name to Interfaith Outreach.   In January our church donated 113 pounds of food.  Thank you to everyone that donated.  If you would like to donate this month, we need canned meat, fruit, oatmeal, shampoo and bars of soap.  Also, any time that you have hotel toiletry items, we need those.  We put them in small bags and give them to everyone that gets groceries. If you prefer for me to do the shopping I will be happy to accept your money, purchase the items, then show you your receipt of what you purchased for Interfaith.

   Thank you,   Mary Gwin
