Opportunities to Serve

Love Thy Neighborhood Give 12 Campaign. Together we can make a tangible difference in the lives of the people who are served by our local Community Partners. Simply choose a tag from the windows in the foyer, and bring the item(s) back at the first of each month for the coming year. Each month we will deliver your donated items to the Giving Closet, Kleen Street, Arbor Ridge Senior Care Facility, Sacajawea Elementary School, and Young Lives. 1 tag x 12 months = the gift that keeps on giving!
