Sharing God's Love

Hello Everyone:
   Thanks to each of you for your assistance as Sharing God's Love helps those in need in our commuinity.
   We would like to thank those who participated in the Stamp Out Hunger Drive.  It was a tremendous help to us.
   Sharing God's Love needs a volunteer on Wednesday morning from 9:00am to 12:00pm to work in the clothing and household areas.  Please contact Shari Selke at 803.732.3188 if you can help.  
   Our current ministry needs:  spaghetti sauce, tea, cold cereal, jelly, toothpaste, gently used bed linens and towels
   School supplies:  gently used back packs, #2 pencils, colored markers, colored pencils, and black dry eraser markers, 2-pocket folders with prongs
   Many, many thanks.
     Shari Selke - Director; p. 803.732.3188
