Gleaners at Fellowship Hour
Hunger ministries have always been important to First Presbyterian Church. At Fellowship Hour today, we learned more about Gleaners from one of their Warren area volunteers. The organization collects 40 million pounds of food each year to feed people throughout metro Detroit. Last summer, many from our church helped pack food at Gleaners and we look forward to more volunteer opportunities there in 2013. On a weekly basis, we support St. Mark's Food Pantry with food donations. Today we learned that Gleaners is the main supplies of food for local pantries like St. Mark's. Supporting Gleaners is supporting folks in our local area, too! Christ calls us to help those who are hungry with our helping hands and with our financial support. We are grateful to be able to partner with Gleaners in serving our neighbors.
