“Make us toil, make us strong
Toting bags where they belong”
(to the Hallie Q Brown Center food shelf!)

Our volunteers are ready to haul your donations from church to our local food shelf. These are especially needed in summer, when kids can’t get free breakfast and lunch at school. There are bins in the narthex and Gathering Space where you can leave your donations.

Contact Dave Borton (dave@sidewalkmystic.com), Marvin Cadwell (susie46buffy@gmail.com), or Gwen Odney (gnodney@icloud.com) with questions or to volunteer to help move donations down the road to the community center.

Here is a list of the most needed food items for the Hallie Q Brown food shelf:
1. canned beans
2. peanut butter, or other nut butters
3. rolled oats
4. canned fruit in juice, not in light or heavy syrup
5. canned vegetables, with no or low-sodium
