More food needed!

The Garden Pantry at Nimmo UMC currently has empty shelves after helping over 100 families last week. They need basics such as peanut butter, jelly, pasta, spaghetti sauce, canned tuna and chicken,

canned beans, any canned vegetables, rice, boxes of mashed potatoes, soup and cereal. For this holiday season they also would like pie crust mix, chicken broth or gravy, stuffing mix and fried onions.

There will be plastic tubs in the library for the collection of these items which we will deliver before their distribution on the 23rd .


PiN Winter Shelter Update

There is a chance that Tabernacle will have the opportunity to provide housing for some of the homeless that PiN serves for a week next March. Before we can commit to doing this we need to know if we have volunteers who would spend a night during that week here at the church to help the PiN staff people who would be in charge. We will also need drivers to transport the people who would be housed here.

Please contact Mary Hall (757-721-7001 or mbhall1@gmail.com) if you would be able to serve in either of these ways.

Jody Flade needs people to deliver Thanksgiving food bags after church on the 21st . Please let them know if you are willing and able to help with either of those missions.
