Food Finders Recruiting Volunteers
Food Finders needs about 235 volunteers a week to cover all the positions needed to keep things running smoothly. If you’d like to help low-income families shop for affordable food at the fresh market food bank in Market Square, please sign up at www.food-finders.org/get-involved/. This is a ministry supported by HTLC.
The Gospel tells the story of Jesus’ command to “Feed My Sheep”. We are blessed to have opportunities to do that right here in our community………………………..
The Food Finders food bank can roughly provide a pound of food for only thirty cents. This means that three meals can be provide for every dollar given.
Envelopes will be provided in the bulletin on the second Sunday of each month, as well as a collection box in the narthex (at the Welcome Center), for support of the Tippy food pantry and Food Finders. Extra envelopes are also at the Welcome Center. Make your checks payable to Holy Trinity and write Food Pantry on the memo line. If you would prefer a food donation we will see that is taken care of as well.
THE LUM PROTEIN PANTRY is open at the Ray Ewry Youth Center at 525 N. 4th Street. Open every Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m., this pantry focuses on the three P’s: protein, produce and paper goods. The pantry is staffed by volunteers and relies on donations of paper goods & select proteins to stock the shelves. The frozen meat products and produce will be purchased and delivered weekly from Food Finders Food Bank.
Volunteers are urgently needed. People can sign up on-line at www.lumserve.org, following the link to Volunteer, then to Volunteer Sign Up Sheets or contact LUM @ 423-2691 or emailing email@example.com
Donations of paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels, paper napkins, feminine hygiene products and diapers) and shelf-stable proteins (peanut butter, dried beans & lentils, canned tuna, baby formula) are also needed. Storage space is limited, so donations of only those items will be accepted. Donations can be brought to the LUM Administrative Office every Thursday morning from 9-11:30 420 N 4th Street. As always, your financial contributions are welcome to help with the costs of purchased products. To give on-line, go to www.lumserve.org/donate or send your gifts to LUM @ 420 N 4th Street.
