The Engage Team is coordinating food boxes for local kids who would normally receive free and reduced priced lunches at school and who do not have food security over school holidays. We will be putting together a total of 50 boxes for families to take home over Christmas break. Boxes will be available for pick up on Sunday, November 25 and are due back to the church Wednesday, December 12. For more information contact Amy Jackson.
