Social Ministry’s fall food drive runs through November 11. Bring non-perishable food items to the bin in the atrium. They’ll be shared with local food pantries, including the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry and the Harmony Church Food Pantry.
The Giving Tree will be in the atrium starting this Sunday, decorated with tags with information about gifts needed for clients of local social service agencies. Take a tag, purchase the gift, and return it by the date specified (most will say December 2 or 9).
The toiletries collection for stockings for clients of The Night Ministry runs through December 9. Needed are items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, wide-toothed combs, hand and foot warmers, warm socks (adult size), small sewing kits, pens and small note pads, and decks of cards. Bring your donations to the bin in the atrium.
