Food Needs in Our Community

The Missions Council sponsors two collections of food each month to help those in need in our community.

  • On the 1st Sunday of the month, non-perishable food donations are requested for FISH, our local food and clothing pantry. Need for food assistance has risen dramatically in the last year. January 2013 set a record high in requests for food at FISH, so your contributions are more important than ever. Go to http://williamsburgfish.weebly.com for more information on this community service. Click here for a new video.
  • Food collected on the 3rd Sunday is donated to Erase the Need's "Gym Bag Project," which provides food to middle school students from low income and homeless families. Items should be non-perishable and sized to fit in a gym bag. Families also appreciate non-food items, such as toilet paper and tissues.
  • If you are unable to be at church on collection Sundays, please know that your donations may be left in the Fellowship Lounge baskets at any time and will be much appreciated. For more information, click on "hands-on missions" at right.
