Mark your calendar! The last Sunday of the month, August 27, is Food Pantry Sunday! We ask that you bring dried milk, tooth paste, tooth brushes, toilet paper (big need), and hygiene products.
We are always grateful for the parishioners of GSL and our friends who support the “little food pantry with a big heart.” The GSL Food Pantry continues to serve many families and individuals in need of food and other items we provide. Thanks to your generosity we are able to purchase toiletries and other needed items. Thanks also to Libby and Bradley for bringing food and female hygiene products which are always needed.
