SHARING BOX

We have a spial project we have just started. With the help of several members, we have a Sharing Box set up on the corner of Bank Street and Hunter Avenue.  It contains non-perishable goods, snack items, small bibles, and books.  As the seasons change we hope to include socks, hats and gloves. Take what you need and give what you can. Our women are continuing to reach out to our community. Thanks to Doug Conrad for building our Sharing Box and to Robbie Disher for the wonderful artwork.
