November 2016 Mission of the month


Our missions emphasis for November is FISH (FRIENDS In Service to Him) Food Banks of Pierce County. There are 7 locations: Brown’s Point, Edgewood, Graham/South Hill, Jackson Street in Tacoma, Lakewood, NW Tacoma, and SE Tacoma. There is also a FISH Mobile Food Bank which serves 9 locations weekly. 45,000 people are served each month, and there is an increase during the holidays. The operation of the food banks includes donors, recipients, people who prepare the food and many volunteers. Not only do the people receive canned/packaged food, they all receive fresh produce and meats. Monetary donations are welcome. Every dollar donated turns into $8 of nutritious food as they can purchase in quantity.

Please donate food for FISH especially during the month of ovember. Put your items in the marked boxes in the foyer under the coat rack.
