The Wilson County Community Help Center
Good morning New Hope!
Anita Drew has informed me that the food pantry at Wilson County Community Help Center is in need of some specific donations. They need canned fruit, canned soup, and pork-n-beans. If you are shopping today or tomorrow go ahead and pick up some of these items and bring them with you Sunday. I know the first Sunday of the month is our designated Sunday for donations, but people are hungry and in need every day of the month. You can make donations every Sunday! Jesus said, “I was hungry and you fed me.” The people asked, “When did we see you hungry and feed you?” Jesus said, “When you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.” ( See Matthew 25:31-46). Let’s feed Jesus!
Grace and peace,
