Food pantries continue to experience record-high demand for their services. Mother’s Day is a special opportunity to honor or remember your mother, grandmother, aunt, daughter, sister, godmother, friend, boss, and/or employee by donating a bag of groceries, a Shop ’n Save card or a check to Kirk Care.

Empty grocery bags will be available after each service on April 27 and May 4 and should be filled and returned by Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11.

Please return your form(s) no later than Tuesday, May 6, so the names of those honored with your donations may be listed in the bulletin on Mother’s Day.

Food drive information, suggested donations and a form to honor or memorialize your special person(s) will be stapled to each bag. Your donation will be blessed as a part of the Mother’s Day offering.

Please join Women of Grace and Grace’s Kirk Care board representatives in this annual event to honor your mother or other special person and also those in need on Mother’s Day. We will mail a card to each loved one in whose honor a donation is given, telling her of your gift.
