The fight hunger campaign continues and we are on to our next goal to keep our local food pantries stocked for those in need. Reusable red grocery bags are available in the narthex.
This outreach program works well as a class project or an errand for a child. Children appreciate the opportunity to give back to the community and help those in need. The groceries are colorful and it is easy for children to understand the need for families to eat. It is good for those giving and those receiving.
Anyone who would like to start a class project and support the local foodbanks, please stop by the church office at 155 Second Avenue in Westwood. You can also call 201-664-1325.
The following is a list of items that the food banks currently are in need of. As always any gift cards for the grocery stores are also appreciated and can be used to buy produce or fresh meat.
Please bring the items you collect and drop them off at Little Red in the church. The office is open from 10:00 - 2:00 pm Monday - Friday. You can also drop them off when you come to church at the 8:00am service or the 10:15am service with Sunday School.
This is a wonderful community outreach program. You do not have to be a member of Zion Lutheran to participate, just a concerned citizen who cares about those who are less fortunate.
Eighty-eight pounds of groceries were donated and delivered to the two pantries. In addition ten $10 supermarket gift cards were given to Westwood Immediate Needs Pantry. Poundage to date is 2,524. Less than 500 pounds needed to reacy 3,000. Your continued support is appreciated. Let's reach another 10,000 pounds!
