We participate in this community wide program, the Brutus-Sennett Food Pantry. A basket is maintained in our vestible at all times for ongoing donations. A member of our church serving on the Steering Committe advises us of particular needs. Monthly, we provide physical support which includes stocking shelves and helping with family distributions.
