Faith in Action

 

Thank you to all who continue to support the Food Pantry in 2014 through donations and volunteer time. We are currently serving an average of 27 families every Monday evening. Your time and dedication to the Pantry is needed and appreciated! Volunteers are the backbone of the Food Pantry. Interested in volunteering? Register online at the CAP website – www.cambridgecap.net and click Get Involved and then go to volunteerism and then go down and click on May thru July Sign Up. Anyone without internet access can also sign up by calling the Pantry at 423-8142. PLEASE consider volunteering---it is very rewarding!!!! Volunteers are needed at present time to help clients on Monday evenings.

The Cambridge Food Pantry & Resource Center is open for shopping every Monday evening from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Guests are invited to shop every other Monday. Donation hours during the month of May are Monday 9 am to 12 pm & 4 pm to 5 pm, Wednesday 9 am – 12 pm and Thursday 8:30 am to 3 pm. Donations may also be dropped off at Nikolay Middle School Office, during school hours 7:45 am to 3:45 pm, Monday thru Friday.

Tasks throughout the year include planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, weighing of vegetables, along with general maintenance and cleanup of crops. All produce harvested at garden is donated to the Cambridge Food Pantry so clients can have fresh produce. As the garden grows we need more volunteers! High school students may earn Silver Cord Hours for their time working in the garden. Families and individuals can sign up for specific days or whole weeks throughout the summer and fall.

Good Samaritan Fund
As people in our congregation and community continue to suffer the impact of our recent recession, our congregation has a unique opportunity to care for its neighbors. If you are in need of assistance because of a recent job loss or other financial struggles, please know that you can apply to the EKLC Good Samaritan Fund for financial assistance. If you are a family who would like to help out people who are struggling, but you haven't quite figured out how, consider making a gift to the Good Samaritan Fund. You will know that the money is being used to help people buy food and gas, cover housing expenses, or bring relief from high medical bills and other expenses.


The Good Samaritan Fund is currently very low on funds. We invite regular and substantial gifts to the fund in order to continue to care for our neighbors in need.
