Katie Higgins and Julie Schmidt are continuing the collection of food donations for Clinton’s Open Cupboard Food Pantry. Please do not leave any donations in the Parish Office/Undercroft. Please put them in the Food Pantry Cart in the Narthex. The special request for September is Back To School Snacks: juice boxes and appropriate snacks - eg. goldfish crackers and granola bars..
In October the request will be for canned vegetables.
Please remember that when school lets out, there are no breakfast and lunch programs for children who depend upon them.
The food pantry website lists the following needs:
