The McKinley/Garden Hills Elementary food pantry continues to be very busy; in December, we served 128 adults and 176 children. Thank you for your continued generosity to the food pantry, which we co-sponsor with Garden Hills School and the Eastern Illinois Food Bank.
This month, we are collecting diapers and baby care items (wipes, formula, etc.) We could also use more plastic grocery bags. Please leave your items in the baskets in the back of the sanctuary or in the large container outside of the secretary’s office in the foundation.
We also need volunteer assistance on Tuesday, Jan. 12 and Tuesday, Jan. 26. Help with unloading is needed at 10 a.m., and help with serving guests from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Please contact Pastor Keith (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in volunteering on those dates.
