Peanut Butter Needed
Feeding America needs your help to provide peanut butter to the hungry in our community. They are sponsoring a peanut butter food drive during July to distribute to families in need. Peanut butter is vitally important to the hungry because it is not only a good source of protein, but also helps satisfy hunger when one is short on food. The Food Bank feeds an estimated 127,000 underprivileged people per month. The peanut butter collected will go to a children’s Backpack program and to the Food Bank’s partner agencies, such as food pantries and soup kitchens. If you would like to help with this, please bring your peanut butter to the church office sometime this month. Thank you so much for helping us in the fight to end hunger!
