Food Share Food Bank…..Thanksgiving Drive

For some families who have jobs, their minimum wage does not allow them to get to the end of the month before they get to the end of their money.
Your generous support is much needed. Your food items will help these families from now  to the end of the winter.
For the next few weeks, you will see specially decorated boxes at all entrances of the church. Please donate each week up to and including October 12th.
Monetary donations are also accepted. They are used for perishable food items. Please donate through your envelopes or church office, clearly noting “FareShare Food Bank Donations”
You can visit the FareShare Food Bank website at www.OakvilleFoodBank.com to get more information about their current needs.
