Food Pantry

Thank you to all who have been contributing food, personal care items, cleaning aids, or monetary gifts. Please know how much we appreciate all that the congregation does to help us continue to provide help for those in need in our community. Any nonperishable food is welcome. All personal care items are welcome. We serve a lot of men so those items are needed most. We have a lot of tooth paste at the moment, so we would prefer things like body wash, deodorant, shavers, etc. Any household cleaning aids are also welcome. We are in need of large paper grocery bags with handles and the red Sendik’s bags. Please place items in the Mission Corner in the section for the food pantry or bring them to the office.

We would also like to thank Pastor Ron for his help during his stay with us. He has been present at each food pantry, lending a helping hand, providing encouragement to those experiencing a difficult time in their life, and providing new ideas for our food pantry. He encouraged the use of a computer program which he helped set up with the office staff that we will be utilizing in the next few months. He set up a visit in June with the Waukesha food pantry, which he helps with. We wish him much happiness and much-needed rest in his re-retirement!

If you can provide fresh produce from your garden this summer, we would appreciate any donations. Please bring them the week of the food pantry (the Second and Fourth Wednesdays of each month). If you can help us with any monetary gifts, we would be most grateful. We hope to continue this much-needed mission for as long as there is a need in our community. God bless each and every one of you!
Our food item for the month of July is pickles! Believe it or not, this item goes very fast! Any variety is welcome, but no large jars, as they are too heavy for the bags. Our household cleaning aid is kitchen disinfectant spray. Thank you so much for your generosity!!
