Our churches have committed to collecting paper products in 2024 for our local food pantry. Toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and tissues are not provided by the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and are needed by everyone. Bucky Reynolds has volunteered to deliver them to the Food Bank quarterly. His first truck load to McDowell went out the end of February.
The collection spot at MPC is in the back of the sanctuary. You can contribute financially through your church treasurer, or you can purchase items, particularly when you see them on sale, and leave them at the church. Keep in mind that the Food Pantry cannot open and distribute large packages unless the contents inside are individually wrapped.
