Ways you can plug in @ GSLC:
Food! Food! Food! The GSLC food shelf needs your donations! Item for the month of May is Soup. Please donate canned food items, baby food and baby items, pasta and rice. The food provided will go to stock the Food Pantry at the Beta Center in Pomona. They are also in great need of hygiene items, including small soaps, small lotions, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, combs, toilet paper, sanitary items for women, etc. Please help if you can.
Backyard Fruit Anyone?? Let’s give the fruit in our backyards to the Beta Food Pantry in Pomona. Pastor kd said he donated about 400 pounds of plums this summer and they were very happy to receive the fresh fruit. Maybe we can do more of this as a congregation.
