Food Pantry Reminder

This is a reminder that our church will be volunteering at the Dover/Phila Food Pantry on Friday, December 28 (Christmas Week), from 9:30am until 12:00.  If you have signed up to volunteer and are unable to make it, please contact Sue Febrache at 330-364-6132.

What Can You Get For A Quarter?

For only one quarter, 25 cents, you can provide a meal to one of the 600 or so weekly recipients at our local Dover-New Philadelphia Food Pantry.  Just think what you could provide for a more sizeable donation.  Throughout the month of January, St. John’s has traditionally donated to the Food Pantry so please consider a contribution to this worthwhile cause. You can use the pew envelopes and mark them “Food Pantry.”  No one deserves to be hungry.
