Let's gain 10,000 pounds

Progress toward 10K

At last count we'd donated 8,348 pounds during 2017. Only 1,652 pounds more to go.

631 = pounds donated on Sunday, Oct. 15.

166 = pounds needed each week to meet our goal by Christmas.

Do you know how to collect 10,000 pounds of food for our neighbors who are hungry? One can (or box or package) of non-perishable food at a time.

When you're shopping for groceries, please drop a few extra items into your cart and bring them to church Sunday (or during the week). Each week we donate the food to Greensboro Urban Ministry's food pantry.
