MUM Cares

Our Outreach Team collects donations of food and supplies on the first Sunday of each month for the Garden City Food Pantry. What a joy to see our shopping cart overflowing each month.

As we have not been meeting in person, physical donations to the Food Pantry have been limited, but we have GREATLY increased our monetary donations and have added some for Pitcairn Pantry.
