How to Help the Food Pantry with Pet Food
Volunteers are always needed for this vital part of our food ministry. Share the unique gift that is you with our neighbors at the food pantry on the third Saturday of each month; help set the table for the Saturday pantry on the third Thursday at 10:00AM; help transport food from Dare to Care to Advent; receive and sort deliveries; bag pet food. If you have a passion or a skill, chances are this ministry can use it!
