The Food Pantry is open every week now to help out families in need of food support. The pantry’s weekly schedule means we are now running out of kids’ donated books! If you are purging book shelves, we’d love to pass along your nearly-new books to our friends at the food pantry. You can drop those off at the front desk, or downstairs in the kids’ room. No magazines, water-damaged, or torn pages, please!
