News & Events for May 1-7

Food Pickup People Needed:

The food pantry needs more people to help with picking up food in New Era. This happens about every other week,
on Thursday morning. If a vehicle is a problem (a truck or large van is
required), there is a vehicle available. Please talk to Kaye Schmidt or Sandy Christiansen to volunteer.

Juice Pickup People Needed:

The food pantry needs someone to pick up juice in Sparta once a month. They must have access to a vehicle big enough to haul a ton box full of juice. It must be an open truck bed because the company sets a pallet right in the back of truck box. For more information, or to volunteer, please contact Sandy Christiansen.

Coffee Servers Needed:

We need a couple of people to help prepare and serve coffee in May. Just talk to the ladies in the kitchen to volunteer. Or, if May doesn't work for you, sign up for an upcoming month. The signup sheet is on the bulletin board next to the kitchen.
