Sharing God's Love

Hello Everyone:
   Thank you so much for your support.  Sharing God's Love is able to help those in need in our community because of your continued assistance.
   We would like to thank all who supported Sharing God's Love through Midlands Gives.  Also, we would like to thank those who participated in the Stamp Out Hunger Drive.
   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, mac & cheese, canned meats, paper towels, canned or boxed potatoes, king and queen sized bedding and new undergarments, all sizes for men, women & children
   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.
