Collection for Food & Funds Has Gone Well

The collection for both food and funds has gone very well. I estimate, as well as other members, that we have collected more food than last year. We have already put together over half the bags that we need for Thanksgiving.  If anyone has paper grocery bags please bring them to our business meeting this Tuesday. We will need them to distribute the food for the families.  Myself, Tencha, Bill and Marsha Hast took advantage of no one in Raphael Hall today and did some bags. We already have 70 of the bags we need completed.
