TOILET PAPER DRIVE
September 15 from 1-4PM
The IMPACT group from the Methodist Church is doing its annual Toilet Paper Drive!!
If you have a “Square to Spare”, we will be going Door to Door to collect Toilet Paper for the Food Pantries.
You might ask – Why Toilet Paper? Well it is a necessity that can’t be purchased with food stamps. The Pantries we work with are always so grateful to receive your donations!!
If you are able to pick-up an extra package at the store for us – we would really appreciate it!! We will be knocking on doors all over town to ask for donations. Always a fun day!!
If you want to drop it off at the church, that is fine as well. If you leave it in the entry, we will find it. J
