GROCERY CART COLLECTION
Living Word is collecting necessities for area families all year round in the grocery cart in the entryway. This collection is now being taken to the Salvation Army in Medina each month to be distributed to those in need.
Depending on the time of the year, we ask for specific items. For example, in the summer we have collected items that can be used for lunches for kids who are home during the day: peanut butter, jelly, tuna, etc. In the fall we begin collecting for holiday dinners. We have also concentrated on all the absolutely necessary items for a clean home and a healthy person which, unfortunately, cannot be purchased with food stamps: toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap, shampoo, deodorant, diapers, toothpaste, dish soap, laundry soap, cleaning products, and garbage bags. By checking monthly, we are able to help fill their most pressing needs. Our current collections will always be listed in our newsletter and on our website below.
IN MAY WE COLLECTED A TON OF AFTER SCHOOL SNACKS AND CEREAL.
IN JUNE WE WILL CONTINUE COLLECTING SNACKS AND, IN ADDITION, SYRUP. Each month as our cart of food is delivered to the Salvation Army for distribution in Medina I am amazed at the generosity of our small congregation. God works miracles every day!
