Owensboro Christian Church Food Pantry
We collected food donations throughout the month of December and we took those to a local food pantry. In return for each donated can or box of food we reimbursed the donator with a Blue Meridian $1 to spend in the store. It would be difficult to put a dollar value on these donations but for our first collection attempt we were in the $100.00 range. We hope to continue this at various time of the year and always at the Christmas Holiday.
