The fall food drive to help our neighbors at the Lazarus House Ministries ended on Sunday December 17th. Here is a shout out to everyone who supported us by bringing in nonperishable food items such as canned tuna and chicken, canned vegetables and fruit, rice, dry and canned pasta and beans, and snack foods. Altogether we were able to collect 11 boxes of food along with personal care items and diapers. In addition, we were able to collect $300 and will forward a monetary donation to the Lazarus House.
Thanks to Sunday School student Austin Afarian for sorting and arranging the items on the table and thanks also to Greg Afarian who helped with loading and unloading the food. The staff at Lazarus House ministries was extremely grateful for the donation. They do great work in their community. You can learn more about their mission and work at www.lazarushouse.org.
