Harvest Home - Covid-19 Style
you have seen the Second Harvest Food Bank commercials that ask for
money because a dollar can purchase ten dollars’ worth of food. For our
Harvest Home food collection this year, in lieu of bringing
non-perishable food items to give to the Salem Community Pantry,
we are asking that you give a free will offering instead.
special collection plate will be set up at worship and during drive-up
communion for your donation. You may also mail your donation to the
church office or stop by to drop it off. Make checks payable to
Emmanuel Lutheran Church and put “Harvest Home” on the memo line.
our Benevolent giving, Emmanuel has committed to give $960 to the
pantry this year. Some of that goes to purchase food and some of it
goes to operating expenses so that the pantry can remain open. Perhaps
we can add another $500.00 or more through this special Harvest Home
offering which will go specifically towards the purchase of food. That
would be $5,000 worth! Of course, if you prefer, you can still
bring in non-perishable food items. Drop them off inside the Education
Building door M-TH from 9 – 3.
