SUMMER LUNCH UPDATE FOR JUNE

Thank you for all of the food donations that have been delivered to the church in the past few weeks! Due to your generosity we are going to hold a revised version of the Summer Lunch program starting June 9th.

We are asking that church members still continue to purchase items, if able. We added 3 items to the shopping list (See below: jelly, hotdogs, and shredded Mozzarella cheese)

We will continue to collect food from 5-6P.M. on the following dates: June 9th, June 16th, June 23rd, and June 30th from 5-6 P.M. at St. David’s Lutheran Church (There will be NO collections on June 2nd due to it being election day.) The collection bin will now be placed outside of the door by the covered drop off area. Someone will be there to collect the items from the bin. The drop off has been moved as we will be handing out lunch bags to the families in need at the Fellowship Hall doorway.

Thanks again for your caring and generosity!
