LISTEN’s FOOD PANTRY

- LISTEN relies on food drives and donations to keep the pantry in stock. We get wholesale pricing to ensure cash donations are maximized.
- In 2016, LISTEN spent $33,285 on food for community dinners and the food pantry. 575 unique households received assistance from the pantry.
- 3 bags of groceries can save a household $90.

At OSLC, we are supplying and packaging “Baby Care Kits” for Lutheran World Relief (LWR). Completed kits are distributed by LWR to those most in need as part of Project Promise, the same program to which we send our school kits and our quilts. Last year we sent 15 kits and this year our goal is to send 20-25! These kits are then included with the quilts and school kits that will be shipped in May 2019.
How you can help:
LWR has provided clear instructions on what items should be in each kit. (They must be sensitive to the many laws regarding imports to various countries.) At OSLC, we’re hoping to make it easy to participate.
You’ll find a ‘clothesline’ display in the narthex. Simply pick as many items as you wish to purchase/contribute and return the item(s) to OSLC. We’ll have a “Baby Care Kit” container outside of the Church Office, so you can turn in the items whenever you have them. The deadline is Sunday, April 28.
If you have any questions, please contact Kari Jo Grant or the church office. Thank you for your generosity!
