Pack The U-Haul

Due to a record number of families on food assistance, many local food banks are in dire need of support.  At Life Community Church, we’re hoping to stock the shelves of the Germantown Neighborhood Center food pantry to overflowing.  In an effort to raise as many donations as possible, we will be hosting, “Pack the U-Haul” on Sunday, November 11th.  Collect as many non-perishable food itmes and personal care products as you can over the next couple of weeks, and bring them with you to worship on Sunday, November 11th.  That morning, we will load it all in a U-Haul and deliver it to the Germantown Neighborhood Center.  Our hope is to replenish the food pantry and help them get ahead on their Thanksgiving collections.  This is a great opportunity to show the love that God has shown us to our community.

In addition to collecting food items from your friends, neighbors and co-workers, we have also made food packages available for purchase. You can purchase one of the following packages, by clicking HERE. (pack the u-haul 2012 has come and gone!)
