DFUMC Shared Pantry

by Office on June 16, 2021
Sunday Shared Pantry 9-10 AM!
We continue to collect donations for church friends, Justa Center, Kyrene Foundation Resource Center, and Veteran’s Pride. You are very welcome and encouraged to stop by if you are in need of non-perishable food, toiletries or cleaning supplies. To keep our volunteers safe we are limiting pick-ups from this pantry to our church community and close friends. Please note that we are opening up to receive donations from the community so that we can help get them out to local charitable organizations who are desperately in need of supplies!
