Food for Advent
Food Pantry donations during Advent: This advent season, we would like to
exceed the donation of food to the needy of the Cambridge area, with a match
for the hungry of the world. As a council, we are asking for you to make a
nonperishable food donation each Sunday in Advent. We will weigh it and keep
a running total for the match, but we will more importantly be providing
each week of the advent season food for those in need.
