Appreciative of May 12 food drive help

Nancy Weidel

Sterling

On May 12, mail carriers from Sterling and Rock Falls had their annual postal food drive.

Trinity United Methodist Church Food Pantry was one of the many that received food. We were very blessed with the much-needed food that we received.

Thank you, letter carriers, and the many people who donated food – you were very generous.

We serve at least 350 people each month, which is about 100 families. The food made our shelves full again. Thank you.

We also want to remind Whiteside Country students and teachers that the School Supply Closet, which is also an outreach program of Trinity United Methodist, is preparing to replenish our supplies to help students in need this next year.

We would appreciate your consideration in helping either with monetary donations or donations of school supplies for the new school year. If you would like someone to come to visit with you to talk about this outreach, we would be happy to do that. Call us at 815-626-7777 or 815-441-1988 to arrange for a speaker.

Thank you, and God bless.
