Fill The Pantry Food Drive

Just around the corner… an opportunity to make a difference during the “FILL THE PANTRY”
May 2024 Food Drive.  The bins are ready to be filled each week.

We are praying for multitudes of donations.
One can.
One box.
One case.
It all matters to someone in need.

The Pantry reminded me that the inventory shrinks at this time of year and they so look forward to the Christ Church May Drive that replenishes them for the upcoming summer months.

Many families are in need over the summer especially those with children who are out of school and require more meals at home.

The Pantry is in particular need of the following items……

Children’s cereals, healthy snacks (granola bars, fruit cups, etc.), condiments (mustard, ketchup, mayo, salt, pepper, Mrs. dash, etc.),
Coffee, Tea (bags or instant),
Paper products (toilet paper and towels), Hygiene products (hand sanitizer, liquid hand soap, dish soap, etc.)

Along with the items always needed in the donations suggestions flyer which you can pick up at church.  

If you feel a “PING” to help, consider adding a few more items to your weekly groceries list and then bring them to any of the Sunday or Wednesday Services or to the church office during business hours in May.

If you have a business or group looking for a community service project consider having your own “Micro” Drive.  We would welcome your donations.  We will also make arrangements to pick up the items if your business / group needs assistance.

Monetary donations are also accepted and used to purchase perishable items such as bread, cheese, eggs, milk, butter and ground meats, etc.

Checks made payable to the “Fairview Heights Food Pantry” can be dropped off at the Church office during business hours or at the Welcome Center during Services.

Our goal for the month of May…….10,000+ items!  Let’s Fill the Pantry!

”Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.“ – Isaiah‬ ‭58‬:‭10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

May the Lord be with you.
