We can all be "Keepers of the Blessing Box"!!! Anytime you walk by the Blessing Box and notice it is empty, or running low on something just go grab some items out of the Blessing Box pantry and fill it up! It will be appreciated!

The first Sunday of each month will be "Stock the Box Sunday".  Just bring your donations and put them at the alter rail in the sanctuary, or in the collection box in the fellowship hall.

Some recommended items are: Crackers, Granola Bars, Individually wrapped snacks, Peanut Butter, Pop Top cans of soup or pasta, Canned Tuna or chicken, Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Small boxes of cereal, Pasta Sauce and pasta, Oatmeal packets or cereal, Toiletries, Socks, Gloves, Scarves
