Main Street's next Soup Kitchen Sunday is September 16 from 2 to 4. Volunteers arrive at 1:30. This might be a good time for you to try on that blue apron and see whether volunteering at the Soup Kitchen is something that you enjoy. Whatever your schedule, there is a time at the Soup Kitchen for you. Some volunteers help to serve breakfast before they head to work. Some help distribute food during the week, and others help with the dinners each night. Donations for our food ministry at the Soup Kitchen are always welcome. Right now the needs include canned red or black beans, one pound packages of rice, canned fruit, and soup. Snacks like Ramen noodles or peanut butter crackers are also appreciated.
Roll Out the Fall Toilet Paper Collection will be held September 9 for the Nashua Soup Kitchen. Shampoo and conditioner are also needed for toiletries bags that are available to clients once a month if requested. You can put it in the Food Pantry Collection Bin in either the lobby or the vestry.
Africa University: We will have a special offering for Africa University on September 16. This university for all of Africa has had the support of Main St. since its beginning in the late 1980s. We have given scholarships and contributed to the ongoing needs of this special school, and this is an opportunity to continue that support.
