Holiday Closing

Important Note about Donations

While the pantry is closed, we cannot accept any donations, perishable or otherwise. Staff will not be present to take care of the donations. While we are grateful for the generosity of our neighbors, leaving donations outside will attract rodents and other pests. Please plan to deliver your donations when we reopen on January 2.

December 29 Mission Workday

Amy Caskie will lead a painting, moving and reorganizing in Lincoln Road Chapel, the Annex, and main church building. Volunteering will benefit many Missions of the church, including Heart to Heart, Trading Post, and Refugee Ministry.

One of the main jobs will be moving some Heart to Heart storage into the previous bookstore off Brownlee Hall. The other major job is painting a room in the FC Annex building. This effort will require many volunteers with varying abilities! This is a great opportunity for students to get service hours while they are off school for Winter Break.

Social Media This Week

Here’s what you may have missed this week! To see regular updates, follow us on

Save the Date

Mark your calendars for our annual dinner to celebrate our volunteers and show appreciation for all their hard work. We will meet in the evening on Tuesday, February 6 in Grace Hall at FC North. Please be on the lookout for more information as we continue to make plans.

Special Skills

We understand not everyone can or wants to volunteer during our regular weekly shifts, but may still want to contribute to our overall success. Heart to Heart is on the lookout for a few volunteers with specialized skills to help with projects from time to time. Please let us know if you have a particular interest or are skilled in:

  • Woodworking, DIY, Building
  • Social Media
  • Community Advocacy
  • Elementary Education
  • One time assembly projects (eg. birthday bags)

While we may not have a related project in mind at the moment, these are some needs we have encountered over time and we would love to know who might be interested in helping with these things in the future. Have another skill or interest you think may be useful? Let us know!
