The Care Net Pregnancy Center of Southern Maryland is having a Baby Bottle Blitz to raise funds for the Center’s ministry to women and babies. Bottles are available to pick up from an usher on Sunday morning or at the church office during the week. You can fill the bottles with loose change, cash, or a check. All bottles should be returned to the church on June 15 (Father’s Day). If you have any questions, you can call the Center at 301-737-4604. Thank you!
Food supplies are short! The Southern Maryland Food Bank has been closed 3 of the past 4 weeks due to a shortage in donations, meaning “Our Daily Bread” has had to close 3 days in April and 3 in March. We have hit the “summer doldrums” 2 months early. The need for nonperishable food items for our neighbors will become an even bigger issue as we get to summer and kids are out of school, meaning they will need to get two meals a day at home instead of at school.
Any and all donations are deeply appreciated. Staples needed include cereals, pasta, mac & cheese, baked beans, veggies, and canned meats. We received over 200 cans of tuna during Lent, and are blessed by a local resident who has provided fresh produce to the pantry. The need is great. Thank you for sharing!
