Every year during March, First Parish has a month-long collection for the Lexington Interfaith Food Pantry. There are two ways you can help during the month. First, please donate personal care products, which are not covered by the Federal food stamp programs. These include shampoos, lotions, dental care products, and other toiletries. Products containing alcohol or hotel-sized items will not be accepted. There will be baskets at both entrances to the church marked Food Pantry donations. We will also continue to accept non-perishable food items as we have been doing on an ongoing basis.
The second way you can help is by making a monetary donation during the special plate collection on Sunday, March 4th. Carolyn Wortman, Director, will speak at the service. All non-pledge contributions will be donated.
Thank you as always for your generosity of spirit and gifts to others in need. If you have any questions or want more information about the Lexington Food Pantry, please contact Lynne Yansen.
