SERVING UP MEALS AND DIGNITY   This month we continue our on-going support to two long-time community partners, All Faiths Food Bank and Resurrection House.  Your donations help our community’s food bank provide thousands of meals to those that would otherwise go hungry, and provide dignity-preserving basics for clients at Sarasota’s day center for the homeless.  The food bank welcomes these non-perishable items.  Resurrection House welcomes men's 30-36 jeans (new or used), men's boxer shorts (new!), men’s sneakers (new or used), men’s and women's white cotton socks (new!), ponchos/rain gear, and back packs/totes/etc.  Please leave your donations in the special bins – Resurrection House’s bin is in the Parish Hall, and the Food Bank bin is in the church.
