Marble Community Church Food and Masks
The church is providing masks and/or groceries if anyone in the community needs such for the next few weeks.
All you have to do is call the church (963-1464) and they will make sure you receive such.
Additionally, if anyone would like to donate non-perishable items, ie can food, paper products etc. they can drop the items off at the fellowship hall (no need to call ahead, the door will be unlocked during daylight hours). And, please drop off only good (non-expired) products.
Lift Up Donations Needed:
New reusable grocery bags and boxes are needed for food distribution. Does your business have bags that you can donate? Seconds, mis-prints – all are needed.
Non-parishable food items also needed. (NO GLASS at this time please.)
Donations can be dropped off at any food pick up location/time.
