Doorstep Update - Planning Ahead for January


More than 40 years ago, St. David’s made a commitment to support Doorstep’s mission. Each January, we, along with three other congregations, are responsible for filling the food pantry and helping in the clothing bank.  We’re setting our goal at 1,500 pounds of food! We reached it last year. WE CAN DO IT!!!  Food Pantry needs are specific. The following items are needed in larger quantities: macaroni and cheese, boxed dinners (Hamburger Helper, etc.) jelly, peanut butter, canned veggies and fruits, canned tuna and meat, soup crackers, soup, oatmeal, dry cereals, pasta, pasta sauce, pinto beans, rice, and canned or powered milk. We’ll start collecting January 1 and continue for the entire month.  The sign up sheet for volunteering in January in the clothing room is on the bulletin board in the narthex.  We are there sorting clothing and helping clients on Thursdays 9, 16, 23, 30 and Monday 27th. Sign up times are 10 to noon or noon to 2.
