February Change for Change
February’s Change for Change will go to the Interfaith Food Pantry. This will be in coordination with Souper Bowl Sunday. The Interfaith Food Pantry (IFP) was founded on October 15, 1987 to serve families in the Blacksburg and McCoy area. The Food Pantry is run entirely by volunteers. There are no paid staff members. It relies solely on cash and food donations from area churches, individuals, and other organizations and is open two hours a day, five days a week for two hours a day. Approximately 550 families are served each month.
Luther Memorial has a faithful group of volunteers who assist at the Food Pantry on a regular basis. However, we could use a couple more volunteers on a recurring basis or as an occasional substitute. We currently volunteer the second and third Wednesdays of every month from 10:00 am until noon. Volunteers assist clients by helping them know what is available and what quantity that they may have. In our downtime, we assist with some light shelf restocking. This is a great way to serve our community. If you have the time, please contact Sandy Hagman at 540-951-0270 or email email@example.com.
Special Request: The Food Pantry no longer receives grocery bags from a local supermarket chain. If you would like to request paper bags when purchasing your groceries, we are happy to recycle them for use at the Food Pantry. Bags with handles are the best because they are easier for our clients to handle them. A bin will be placed in the narthex for collection.
