MOTHER HUBBARD’S CUPBOARD: Opportunities to Serve-
The number of local families needing food is increasing again. However, the overall donations to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard have decreased since Christmas. They are giving groceries to over 165 families each time they’re open. Please consider picking up one or two nonperishable food items for our brothers and sisters in need each time you get your groceries. Place donations in the grocery cart located in the Welcome Center. Imagine how much food Grace could donate if each family picked up one or two items for the Cupboard during their once-a-week grocery trip.
