A Message from Bridges to Hope
SEASONS GREETINGS & HEARTFELT THANKS from BRIDGES TO HOPE: Your kindness this past year has helped relieve hunger for over 10,000 of our neighbors, distribute 600+ filled school bags and allowed 360 families the comfort of sharing a turkey dinner last Christmas. Did you know that just $25 can feed 1-2 people for four days?
Merry Christmas from the Staff, Board of Directors and Volunteers of Bridges to Hope Food Aid Center. The generosity of your congregation’s food and financial donations is the backbone of the important work we do and allows us to relieve hunger and restore dignity in our community.
Beverage Container Recycling
DOING CHRISTMAS CLEANING?
Great opportunity to support our Youth Group Beverage Container Recycling: Our Youth Group collects beverage containers for recycling. If you would like to drop off your beverage recycling at the church, here’s what can be recycled: aluminum can; plastic containers; glass bottles; steel cans; drink boxes (tetra); mini sips (drink pouches) etc. (Please wash out all bottles and remove all caps before dropping them off.)
Please note: we are requesting beverage containers only!
From SNAC to all those who participate - Thank you for your support!
