Barrels of Blessings
Let's continue filling our food barrel! Our donations go to the food pantry at Bethany Lutheran
Church. Any donations of non-perishable foods are welcome, but specific items are suggested
for each month.
October: pasta, meals-in-a-box, canned soups.
Remember, any type of non-perishable food is welcome throughout the year. It will make us
just as happy to give these items as it will be for them to receive the help. Thank you!
