Service at Wasatch

Crossroads Urban Center continuing Food Drive: Be sure to pick up a shopping bag out of the shopping cart in the Fellowship Hall. Fill it with food, and bring it back any time.  Food is donated for the homeless through Crossroads Urband Center.  Especially needed are protein items such as peanut butter, canned tuna or chili.  Since the homeless generally have no way to cook food, think about food that does not need to be cooked or pop-top canned goods.  But all food donations are needed. And thank you!
