Can you help? We are practicing social distancing in that clients pick up pre-packed bags of food on the sidewalk outside the food bank. We need volunteers to pack bags and bring them up to set on the tables for distribution. Clients will not enter the food bank facility. We are also in great need of food and supply donations. Help your neighbor in this time of high need.
