Health and Welfare
Good news! Mission accomplished! Two really large shopping bags filled to overflowing with Campbell Soup labels were taken to New Life Youth & Family Services. They were very grateful and asked us to continue saving the labels. Thanks for your awesome support this past year. God bless you and save those labels. New Life is “changing lives – building futures.” Let’s do our part.
As seen in the local newspaper: Local canning project helps “meat” the need of the hungry. The mobile meat canner sponsored by the Mennonites was set up on the campus of Christopher Dock Mennonite High School from March 30 to April 1. Local volunteers gathered to process more than 24,000 pounds of meat. Approximately 100 volunteers helped to fill, work and label the canned meat and prepare boxes for shipping to areas with the most need. This is a project held annually. Together they answered the call to "Feed the Need.”
