Our local food pantries are experiencing extreme shortages. Some of their shelves are empty. The hard economic times have meant fewer donations, but more people in need.
Please consider donating items such as canned goods, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, mac and cheese either directly to one of our food pantries: Casting Bread (194 Aho Rd. Blowing Rock), Christian Outreach (at First Baptist), Seeds of Hope (105 Ext. in Carriage Square), or Health and Hunger Coalition.
Or, bring your donations to church and leave them in the narthex here:
