Food Collection for Greensboro Urban Ministry (GUM)
The Social Concerns Committee will collect food for the
GUM food pantry during the holiday season.
Please bring your filled bags to the connector in the
meetinghouse by Christmas Eve.
Greensboro is ranked number two for food insecurity in
the nation and hunger is a daily reality for some of our fellow
residents.
Socks for Children Spending the Holidays in the Guilford
County Detention Center
New and clean, gently used socks are needed to help
children (14-17 years old) know they are remembered
during the holidays. Currently there are 17 males and
four females. Two of the males wear size 14 shoes. Other
juveniles wear standard adult size socks sizes 9 - 12.
Please leave socks in the Kicks for Kids bin in the NGFM
foyer. Thank you, Barbara Leland
