Our October Mission of the Month is the Orion Area Food Pantry along with other local charities. You’ll find an offering envelope in your packet of envelopes; however, rather than giving money, please consider giving nonperishable boxed or canned goods instead. Specifically, there is always a need for canned fruit or jars of apple sauce. With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, you may also choose to give a specific food item to help the Orion Area Food Pantry provide a holiday meal to their clients this November or December.
The Orion Area Food Pantry is supported by all area churches. It exists to serve anyone in our school district who may need food. They distribute food on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 4 to 6 p.m. If you know of anyone who would benefit from this ministry, please encourage them to sign up.
