Join our families and children as they practice service to others by collecting food for the Santa Barbara Food Bank during the month of February.
On Sunday, February 10 join us during Middle Hour as we create door hangers to place on our neighbor’s homes. Sorting day will be Sunday, February 27 during Middle Hour when we gather up all our collected goods to take to the food bank.
Food stuffs will be welcome at the collection station in the rear of Parish Hall all during the month.
