10,000 AND COUNTING!!!!!
Forest Hills Presbyterian Church is excited to announce that we have passed the 10,000 count in our ONE CAN A WEEK ministry. This ministry was started less than four years ago as a means to send a steady source of food into Caring Services food bank by asking each family to bring one non-perishable food item to church each week. This has been a blessing for our congregation and another tie that binds us with love and appreciation to Caring Services.
We have so much #gratitude for this mini-grant! It came just in time: a veteran came to us with a toothache yesterday and we spent almost 1/3 of the grant to help him out.
We are grateful for our many supporters who donate time, money, services, and labor.
