Christmas Food Collection: Each family will be receiving a grocery store gift card at Christmas for food for their Christmas meal. We no longer give them a large food box at Christmas but encourage them instead to pick up a food box from 4C’s or Share the Table Food Pantries during the month of December. During the month of December, we will be collecting food for the food pantries. You many bring any of the following items and place them in one of the bins marked Christmas Food.
Oats, grits, cereal (sugar reduced,) jelly (any kind), peanut butter, fruit cocktail, canned peaches, canned green beans, canned corn, canned peas, canned potatoes, pork & beans, canned tomato or hearty soup, canned hash, canned tuna, canned chicken breast, Treet, spaghetti sauce, spaghetti, rice, saltine crackers, macaroni & cheese, sugar, powdered milk.
