Thanks to all of you who donated to the Easter Food Ministry food drive. We have enough food to feed 43 families on April 10 with hams, sweet potatoes, green beans for a delicious Easter dinner and other canned goods and staples for those in need.
The Food Ministry of Flowery Branch UMC is supervised by Kathy Prater and Bea Simmonds and is supported by members of the congregation. Help is provided to families in the Flowery Branch area and to children during the summer time and during school year vacations.
Each week, more than 170 people are assisted. This number increases to close to 400 over the summer months.
We welcome donations of cash to the Food Ministry. We are fortunate to be able to buy food at wholesale prices and your donations will let us take advantage of special bulk purchases. You may make your tax deductible donation to Flowery Branch UMC, PO BOX 490, Flowery Branch, Ga. 30542. Please indicate it is for the food ministry.
