"Families Helping Families" A Huge Success

A few weeks ago the Sunday School children were asked what they might like to do to help people who are less fortunate. They came up with the idea of collecting money which could be used to purchase food for the New Hope Food Pantry. It was decided to purchase complete, prepared Thanksgiving dinners from Mariano's and donate them to the pantry.

They also decided to involve the entire congregation in this worthy venture. So for the last several weeks, money was collected in both the Sunday School and after worship services.

And now, the results are in. The children and the congregation collected a total of $1,700!! Gift cards for four complete dinners have already been given to New Hope along with a check for $1,400 which they will use to purchase individual Thanksgiving food items.

Thanks to all who donated to this. Many people are going to have a happier Thanksgiving because of you!
