Do Something

Some ways you can make a difference...

 

 

Bring Food on the Fourth.  Every fourth Sunday worshippers are invited to bring a donation of food to support the Blacksburg Interfaith Food Pantry.
 
Support the Lord's Table.  Gardeners can bring extra produce to share and place it on the table in the fellowship hall.  Others are invited to take what they want and leave a donation which will be given to the ELCA's World Hunger Appeal.
 
Donate to Lutheran Disaster Relief.  LDR is in the front lines responding to the tornados, flooding, and hurricanes which have devastated communities from Haiti to the Upper Midwest.  Donations can be sent to LDR at P. O. Box 71764, Chicago, IL 60694-1764, or via the Web at LDR.
 
Support To Our House.  Be part of this ministry to homeless men by volunteering to cook, spending the night at the shelter, or preparing personal toiletry packets.
 
Write a Letter.  Join a Bread for the World initiative which contacts legislators and asks them to support measures which reduce hunger at home and abroad.  http://www.bread.org/

Join the Choir.  Supporting the congregation in offering its praises is a high calling.  If you have a willing heart and can practice Wednesdays at 7:00, you are invited.
 
Go Gleaning.  Lots of good food is left in the field after the commercial harvesting.  Feeding America organizes efforts to gather and distribute to area food banks.
 
Save egg cartons, baby food jars, and toilet paper tubes.  The Virginia Interfaith Child Care Center needs all of those things.  There is a box in the narthex to collect these items.
