UPCOMING MISSION OPPORTUNITIES
The pantry will be collecting feminine hygiene products especially pads both super, regular and light; tampons both regular and super may be used. Also, we need deodorant, both women’s and men’s. There are also requests for dental floss.
The pantry generally on the 4th Saturday each month continues to grow and be in high demand. In June the pantry served 112 families and 266 individuals in Radford. “Those of us who volunteer generally leave feeling so blessed. We appreciate the support of the congregation in this ministry with any donations, either monetary or actual supplies.”
