     We will need these items from our churches on an ongoing basis: Cereal, Pasta items, Rice, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Oatmeal, Macaroni and Cheese. Toiletries, Tooth Brushes, Mayonnaise, Grits, Self-rising Flour, Dishwashing detergent, Cleaning Products, Self-rising Cornmeal, Sugar, Laundry Detergent/Cleaning Products, and Diapers.  Maybe your church wants to pick out a few items like; Peanut Butter & Jelly, and either bring them to your volunteers or bring them to the Assn. Office, on a regular basis.   Maybe your youth want to collect canned goods once a quarter or there are other numerous ways to help.  If you have questions, just give us a call at the number listed above.
