Monthly Food Bank List
Each month First Presbyterian collects donations for Emergency Food Pantries at St Patricks Church, the East Wayne Street Center, and Wellspring Interfaith Social Services. Food items and/or money donations are collected in the Narthex on the third Sunday of each month, or can be dropped off at any time at the church office. The collection is supplemented by additional quantities of food purchased with budgeted mission funds.
