The Red Giving Bag program is an on-going Outreach ministry that helps several local agencies* provide items for their clients that are not covered by the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. These personal essentials (toiletries, personal hygiene items, paper products, diapers) cannot be purchased through the SNAP program.
Participation is easy! Simply pick up a bag from the display rack in the Narthex and use it to hold any of the suggested items during your next shopping trip! A handy shopping list is attached with recommendations. Return your in-kind donations to the Giving Chest located in the Narthex where you can swap a filled bag for an empty one to have on hand to use again. Thank you to all who have been shopping, dropping and swapping!
