ESM Food Collection
The First Sunday of every Month:
ESM depends on First Pres for our large food collection the first Sunday of each month. Will you help collect the food at one of our stations - Weber Street parking lot, Bijou Street (main) entrance, or the plaza entrance? The time commitment is short and it is a great opportunity to meet and greet people as they drop off their donations. Time shifts are 30 minutes prior to each service: 7:50 - 8:20; 9:15 - 9:45, or 10:20 - 11:10.
- tomato sauce
- diced tomatoes
- cream of mushroom soup
- ramen noodles
- macaroni & cheese
- peanut butter
- diapers - all sizes
