Food Pantry Hours

First Church’s food pantry will be open today from 3:00 to 5:00.

We will practice social distancing, meaning people can do this entirely from their cars. Those who walk-in can wait on the landing inside the door while someone brings a bag of food to them.
Please spread the word to anyone who may need this assistance.
