IT'S BACK-- 2nd ANNUAL LENTEN FOOD DRIVE!

WAY TO GO KIDS!

Thanks to a great effort last week by our Children and Youth Ministry team, the St. Martin's Preventing Hunger campaign has netted 713 pounds in just 2 weeks!

The kids and their families donated a whopping 305 pounds of food and hygiene products. This week it's the Vestry's turn to bring us closer to the 2000 pound goal we're trying to reach by Easter. Please feel free to donate as much as you can even if you're not a member of a ministry team. The food will be distributed to our service partners at WECAN in Mound, Grace Family Center (Westonka Foodshelf) and Interfaith Outreach in Plymouth.

We've also set up red buckets around the church for cash donations--$1.00 donated buys $8.00 of food.

Here's a list of items needed:

---Personal hygiene products

---Laundry detergent

---Snack items for bag lunches

---Granola bars/healthy snacks

---Baking supplies

---Canned goods

Thank you for your generosity as we take part in an important effort to feed the hungry in our neighborhoods.
