Social Ministry Updates January 12, 2021

The demand for food assistance remains very high at the Living Faith pantry in Rockville. In recent weeks they have served 70 families in a single week, four times the number served pre-pandemic. The need is so critical that the pantry has suspended distribution of personal care items and is focusing only on food at this time. Please help us support Living Faith’s important effort! Right now, there is a deep need for canned meats and peanut butter, as the county has stopped providing frozen meat.
