Emergency Food Bags for Homeless (EHAP)
EHAP is in need of food for emergency food bags that they distribute to the homeless in our area. Food items include: peanut butter and crackers, tuna fish and cracker combo, canned food with easy to open lids, bags of nuts/trail mix, slim jims, etc. Basically, any non-perishable food items that are ready to eat and easy to carry. These items can be packaged together in gallon/freezer ziplock bags. If you are comfortable picking up some of these items when you are grocery shopping, please contact the church office to schedule drop-off.
