HELP! Our local Faith Food Pantry is in need of help.  Due to increased

 extremely low. Following is a list of items they need the
 most:  crackers, box potatoes, pork & beans, canned fruit,
 instant rice, Spaghetti o’s and Ravioli, spaghetti sauce,
 tomato projects, Tuna Helper, jam/jelly, hand soap, toilet
 paper.  Anything else would be appreciated also.
 
OPPORTUNITIES FOR SERVICE!  RCWS has given money to Habitat
 for Humanity to build “houses in a box” here in GR for Hurricane
 victims.  Volunteers will build 2 of these homes in a Steelcase
 warehouse at 44th and Eastern.  Building will take place on Saturday,
 February 4, 11, and 18 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and also Tuesday,
 Wednesday, and Thursday of these weeks.  You do not need to be a
 skilled builder to help.  When these homes are complete, they will be
 loaded on semi-trucks and shipped to Alabama and finished on site. 
 If you are interested in helping, sign up in the narthex.
