There is a white bag on my doorstep
If you find a white bag on your doorstep this Saturday, don’t throw it away. There is something inside for you to keep and a note asking you to put out nonperishable food the following Saturday.
Yes, it is time for the community food drive held annually by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Scout Troop 310, and over the past few years, many student athletes as well. Your donations help feed hungry people over the next few months.
Much of the food collected goes to fill Thanksgiving baskets for those who came up a little short this year. Other food doesn’t wait until Thanksgiving to be consumed. The Cumberland Presbyterian Church gives out food on a year-round basis.
Many are hurting this year. Many who received before have been blessed this year. These food drives are part of being a community. Those who are blessed help those in need.
Please look for your bag this Saturday. Please fill it with canned food and put it on your doorstep on 18 November 2017 by 9:00 a.m.. As always, please make sure that the food that you donate is not expired.
