Christmas Giving Project 2018

LUKE 3:11…If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.

The food pantry and emergency assistance program provides food and emergency financial assistance for shelter, utilities and medications to individuals in need in Preble County.

This Christmas, ECOB is partnering with the Food Pantry to meet the needs of families in need. We would like to raise funds and provide needed items while bringing awareness to the many volunteer opportunities at the Food Pantry. Our goal is 5,000 pounds.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Give – You can give online at our website, being sure to select the “Luke 3:11” fund, or during the Sunday morning offering. For contribution credit, please make checks payable to ECOB, use an offering envelope and denote “Luke 3:11” and amount on the other line. Every $1 donated equals 1 pound.
  • Bring in needed items – Purchase and bring to the kiosk items the Food  Pantry has requested (see below). Items will be collected at ECOB Nov  11 through Dec 16.
  • Volunteer – The Food Pantry is a great place for individuals and small groups to Share Life and Share Christ. Contact the Jenny McCarty about serving at the Pantry during operating hours.
