Food Collection Weekend
The C.W.L. is excited to share an opportunity to help others during this strange year. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Dew Drop-In as they are experiencing higher than normal numbers of people using their services. They will provide a list of suggestions each month for us to collect. We will also be collecting cleaning supplies for the Regional Food Distribution Association. The R.F.D.A. has been providing hampers for people who have had to isolate during this pandemic and have had requests for cleaning supplies from families that can not leave their homes and have no one to shop for them.
The Donation weekend will be July 3/4th . We thank you in advance and as stated the lists will follow.
Next week we will send you a list of suggestions from the Dew Drop-In and some cleaning supply ideas.
The week of collection we will thank and provide a last suggestion that they could drop it off by noon for this month’s collection.
