Still Time to Drop Off Food Donations! Help Families and Churches in the LCMS Texas District with Winter Storm Recovery
If you are in Northern Illinois and would like to help fill a truck with requested food only for the Texas District, there is still time this week to do so.
Immanuel Hillside Food Pantry began accepting food donations this week from several Northern Illinois District churches and L.E.R.T. teams for those recovering from Texas Winter Storm Uri.
The following churches held food drives and made deliveries this week:
Jayne Siou, Director of Immanuel Hillside's “Put Your Hands Together” Food Distribution Ministry stated that their donations and LCC donor food will be delivered next Wednesday to the Texas LCMS District in San Antonio and the Central Texas Food Bank in Austin for immediate distribution to those in need.
The food donation truck(s) will be leaving Immanuel Hillside Food Pantry on Friday, March 19. Your support is greatly needed for the success of this mission and for all our Brothers and Sisters in Christ in Texas.
In our effort to provide emergency food and to follow our mission, we are requesting the following emergency food donations for our relief truck:
