Mission Focus – Local Food Pantries
Can you support HUNGER RELIEF?! This month St. Mark’s is supporting food pantry ministries that are helping feed hungry people, right here in Hamilton County:
Carmel United Methodist Food Pantry (Carmel)
Open Doors Food Pantry (Westfield)
Third Phase Christian Center Food Pantry (Noblesville)
The need and demand for food pantries has increased while the rising costs of food has diminished the supply! Your donations provide for families and individuals who qualify as needing assistance; low-income, homeless clients, and those who struggle with food insecurities. Please help stock their shelves to join us in fighting hunger and food insecurity!
How Can I Help?
- Financial contributions may be given using the mission offering envelope on Sunday morning or online at stmarkscarmel.org/give.
- Honor someone special with a Christmas card and mission donation through our Tree of Lights campaign. Visit stmarkscarmel.org/lights to learn how.
- Donate non-perishable food items at the donation bins inside Door #2, on Monday-Friday, between 9-4. Current greatest needs for their food pantries include:
|beef stew||canned chicken||fruit cocktail||pancake mix|
|peanut butter||baked beans||mandarin oranges||rice a roni|
|vegetable soup||chicken noodle soup||canned vegetables||macaroni & cheese|
Please help stock their shelves! Together we CAN make a difference in the lives of others! Place donations in a bin at St. Mark’s main entrance. We also collect OATMEAL year round for Fletcher Place food pantry!
