Food Pantry Donations

Each of our small groups at church are supposed to get involved in some sort of outreach ministry. Seeing as food pantries nationwide are hurting for donations, while need is rising, our group decided to head up collections for our local food pantry.

I made an announcement during the service last Sunday, Steven put a collection box in the church foyer, and in only one week, our members had brought in all this:

I dropped all that off today. I'm excited about this. Our church is small, yet our members are so giving. I just hope we can keep up the momentum and remember that we have people in our community who need the basics, such as food and paper products. My hope is that I'll have a trunk full every week to drop off at the food pantry.

We have a very similar program at our church (which is also very small). It always amazes me the amount that people are willing to give when you make it easy for them to do so! Excellent!
