Even though Grace Lutheran Food Pantry has received its second $5000 from Thrivent, the need for volunteers to give of their time remains. We will be packing boxes on May 17 and 31 beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the food pantry area downstairs. Our Easter distribution, done in the cold and rain, found us short-handed for volunteers. The men in the alley/under the portico worked diligently for hours with no relief workers to give them time for a break or even a cup of coffee. If you are able, please consider helping with the June distribution which will be held on Monday, June 9. We also continue to need volunteers to help with the sanctuary set-up on Sunday, June 8. Believe it or not, your gift of time is often much more valuable than the gift of money!
