Pick up grocery bags April 30 & May 7
Return remembrance forms no later than May 9
Return filled grocery bags by Sunday, May 14

This Mother’s Day you can help fill the needs of our community while you honor a special woman in your life with our Mother’s Day Food Drive.

You can donate a bag of groceries, a Shop ‘n Save gift card or a check (made out to Grace Church, with “KirkCare Food Drive” on the memo line) and we’ll give your offering to Kirk Care, a local food and financial assistance organization. Grocery bags, remembrance forms and a list of suggested donations will be distributed after church on April 30 and May 7.

Please return the remembrance form no later than Tuesday, May 9, so the names of those for whom donations are made may be listed in the bulletin on Mother’s Day. You can submit the form below or pick up a form at church.

Bring your filled grocery bags and other donations to Grace no later than Mother’s Day, May 14.

A collection cart, table and the box for the remembrance forms will be in Albright Hall during the two weeks before Mother’s Day. If you bring gift cards or checks before that Sunday, please put them in the lock box on the wall by the office mailboxes and mark them “Mother’s Day Drive for Kirk Care.” On Mother’s Day before the worship service, someone will assist you in placing your donation on the steps in front of the altar for a blessing. If you need to bring the remembrance form on Mother’s Day, place it in the Mother’s Day box or hand it to an usher.

In the week following Mother’s Day, Women of Grace will send a note to each mother or other loved one in whose honor a donation was given, telling her of the sustaining gift you gave in her name. Your gift will be delivered to Kirk Care early in the week.

Please join Women of Grace and your Kirk Care Board representatives in this annual food drive to benefit our community!

For I was hungry and you gave me food… (Matthew 25:35)
