New Bridge Community Church Food Drive

The summer months are some of the slowest months for donations to food banks.  To help meet this need, children’s ministry at New Bridge Community Church will be sponsoring a food drive for the months of July and August.  The donations will benefit the Thurston County Food Bank and the Union Gospel Mission.  Please bring nonperishable items (canned meat and cereals are in high demand) to church and place them in the designated bins found around our facility. There is a box in the administrative office located on the 8th St side (map).  Office hours are Tuesday – Friday 9:00 to 5:00 p.m.  Feel free to drop off your items during the week or on Sunday.  Thank you for helping those who need a little extra help in our community.
