FCC has been involved in a ministry with the Annex Family Shelter for over 20 years. We have evolved with the program and its locations, always being flexible with the changes on location for the overnight guests and in providing food.
This year we are providing dinner and breakfast on the second Saturday (dinner) and Sunday (breakfast) of the month. The past few months the Shelter Committee has been doing the purchasing and preparing for these meals for about 60 residents. Now we are ready to invite other members of the church to join us in this endeavor. Please give thought to participating in this ministry by helping to prepare a meal or making a donation of non-perishable foods.
Watch for a Sign-up Genius where you can volunteer to help prepare a dinner on the second Saturday afternoon from 2:00-5:00 in our own church kitchen. The casseroles will then be taken to the Annex. You will also be able to sign up to donate non-perishable foods that are needed to prepare the dishes, or to make a monetary donation to the restricted Annex Family Shelter account for the purchase of ingredients. We will be collecting the food downstairs on January 29.
If you have questions, or would like to join the committee, contact a member of the Annex Shelter Committee – Babs Sullivan, Marsha Miller, Jenny Allen, Marjie Enseki or Mary Brooner.
