Thank You

What a response to help the needy in our neighborhood! To date we have collected over 700 bags of food through your generosity! Those bags have gone to help folks in our congregation, folks in our Shalimar community and Sharing and Caring! As a reminder we collect donations from 9-11 in front of the FLC on MWF.  We start passing our food from 10:30-11:30 at the same location, then we go to the Ballfield in Shalimar for another hour to pass out to the community.  The next day we take the remaining items to Sharing and Caring!

One recipient was so impressed in what Shalimar was doing, he comes everyday to help collect and had out bags of food to the needy!

In addition to food items we have given out over $1200 in Gift cards for milk, vegetables, fruit, etc. Please keep up the good work we will continue the program until the need is no longer there!
Bless you all!
