Members collected coins in tennis ball can “banks” and raised a total of $905.48 that will be divided between the Christian Help Center and the Presbyterian Hunger Fund.

They also participated in a “Fill the Bag” food campaign in which they filled grocery bags with specified numbers of canned meat, soup, peanut butter, green beans and other vegetables, applesauce, macaroni/ cheese dinners, rice and dried beans. Items in each bag should provide a family of four with meals for three days.

Seven hundred pounds of groceries were collected and delivered to the Christian Help Center.
