The Evangelism/Social Ministry Committee will be preparing Easter food baskets to give to families who have been identified as being in need.

Collection of non-perishable food items and monetary donations will take place in March.

For your food contributions, please put them in the shopping cart by the Open Pantry cabinet.

Monetary contributions may be sent to the church office, placed in the offering plate in an envelope marked “Easter Food Baskets,” or placed in the basket on the Open Pantry cabinet. Checks can be made out to St. Paul Lutheran Church with “Easter Food Baskets” in the memo section.

We are seeking a variety of canned and boxed goods including but not limited to pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, cereal, cookies, juice, bread mixes, canned fruit. Please note that we do not need any canned vegetables at this time.

With the cash we receive, we will purchase fresh items, including a ham for each basket.

Our collection will conclude on Sunday, April 2, so that we can shop during the week of the 2nd and have the baskets ready by Palm Sunday, April 9 for distribution in time for Easter. We hope you will support this worthy endeavor.
