Volunteers needed to provide meals for the Teen MOPS
Our church hosts meetings for a Teen MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group, and they could use our help in providing the young mothers, their children and the volunteers that facilitate the program with meals. Volunteers may either prepare a meal and drop if off at church on the meeting day, or donate gift cards to area grocery stores or restaurants, so the MOPS leaders can purchase or order food. Contact the church at 457‑5180 if you would like to help.
