EASTER FOOD BASKET DISTRIBUTION, from Missions and Ministry ( Candy Aldrich)

We are still going ahead with the Easter Basket distribution for our friends in need. Some of our members have already brought their food to church- and many have brought extra! We still have some food outstanding, though and, since activities at church have been suspended, we have come up with a way for things to be collected. There is a basket and/or cooler on the benches outside the front doors of the church. if you can, place your items in there, and if you can tape your ‘egg’ on your items , that would be great. If you cannot get your food to church before March 29th please contact me. My home # is (315)986-4247.

My cell # is (585)520-8468-you can call or text that number. I will be checking the containers a few times a day.

We have 9 families receiving baskets right now. Thanks to your generosity we will have some things to give , even if we cannot get everything we usually provide. As usual, the members of St. John’s are incredibly giving. Thanks for all your gifts!
