HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The neighbors we serve are often going through a rough time, financially and sometimes otherwise too. In sharing a little bit of yourself by making homemade cards to go with the food bags we give out each week, you will remind those we serve how much people care. And let's face it, a good picture makes us all happy!

DESCRIPTION

At the food pantry, we distribute hundreds of bags every week to our neighbors in need. By making cards to go in our bags each week, you will bring a smile to someone's face and touch their heart in a way our food cannot.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Construction paper

2. Markers, crayons, and/or colored pencils

3. Stickers and/or stamps (optional)

4. Large envelope and postage for mailing cards
