Summer Donations Needed

Matthew 25 had a successful delivery on May 23rd. There is so much going on at church and yet our community continues to let their donations pour in, just like the rain in the past month. The pantry is so grateful for our ongoing support.  It seems as if there are more mouths to feed, and often not enough food.  Please continue to help us as we continue to donate to Seeds of Hope. We are currently in our summer campaign. Please look on our website and bulletin for more information. We know how valuable your contributions are and thank you on behalf of the many mouths you continue to feed! 
Isaiah 58:7 Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.

Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation

Please continue your good works this spring and summer. Matthew 25 will be collecting healthy food items for children to help maintain their nutrition over the summer. Examples of nutrient-dense and/or kid friendly foods include but are not limited to yogurt, eggs, cheese sticks, peanut butter/jelly, trail mix, crackers, low-fat granola bars, canned fruit in 100% juice, cereal, soups, pasta/pasta sauce, etc. See the Sign-Up Genius for other ideas: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054ba5a729a20-matthew  
Please feel free to purchase these types of foods on your own and bring them to church or provide monetary donations to this aim.
As always, thank you for your continued support and generous contributions!
Our next delivery to Seeds of Hope is Monday, June 18th
