Food Drive
In addition to the year-round partnership with have with the Emergency Food Cupboard at the Northwest London Resource Centre, we have decided to bless this program intentionally this season. However, we will be running this Food Drive to donate in January 2021, slightly after a time when food banks normally receive a lot of donations.
