|ECC Food Drive|
|During the month
of November, we have been talking to the students at The Janice K. Pollard
Early Childhood Center about serving others through the act of giving.
The students participated in a 2 week food drive for 2 of our community
food banks: Dividing Bread Ministries and Church of Christ Food Bank.
They graciously donated 2 full truck loads of a variety of goodies for
the 119+ families served each month. We would like to thank the families
for their gracious contribution and pouring of love on community families.
