Our older elementary and youth learners found it on their hearts this fall to open a food pantry for those in need in Spring Lake area.
With your help, the “Fisherman’s Basket” is now open one Sunday per month in Wesley Hall. Each month we serve over 15 local residents, one who responded “you are the answer to my prayer.” Indeed, you are!
Our pantry can use the following items: Toiletries (trial & full size), peanut butter, jelly, dried potatoes, dry milk, crackers, detergent (dish & laundry), juices, snacks and canned vegetables (green and non-green).
