During the months of November and December, the CUMC Health Ministry Team is sponsoring an extra holiday food drive to benefit the Crete Pantry.  This drive will begin the 2nd Sunday of November.  The Crete Food Pantry is a weekly community program which our church supports with financial donations, food, and volunteers.  The mission of the Crete Pantry is to provide food to those who are in need.  Please take time during this holiday season to support this project and our community by bringing the following requested items listed below and placing them in the labeled bins located on the table outside the library.  Since we are not able to use expired foods, please check the expiration date on the cans. You can make a positive impact on the lives of many in our community through your generous support of this food drive.  THANK YOU!!
