EECM Food Collection
May 19, 2019
In May, the Hunger and Homelessness Mission Action Community (MAC) of Shadyside Presbyterian Church invites you to participate in a food collection benefitting the Food Pantry at the East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM), which is experiencing an increase in food requests. Bags will be distributed after worship on Sundays, May 5 and 12, and a list of suggested donation items will be attached to the bag (please see below for suggestions). Filled bags will be collected at our worship service on Sunday, May 19.
If you are unable to attend the service, you are welcome to participate by dropping off your bag at the church office during the week before May 19. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, checks should be made payable to “Shadyside Presbyterian Church” with “EECM Food Collection” on the memo line, and placed in the offering plate on Sunday, May 19.
Please consider serving the community in this simple but critical way.
Additional questions can be directed to Rev. Todd Leach or to any member of the Hunger and Homelessness MAC.
Non-perishable food and other items to consider:
- Cereal (low sugar, high fiber)
- Canned tuna or salmon (packed in water)
- Fruit or vegetable juice (100%, any size)
- Canned beans
- Canned vegetables
- Peanut butter
Please note that EECM appreciates no glass.
