If so, text, call or email Pastor Jason Russ who is leading the coordination: 440-678-8781 or [email protected] Let’s be like Christ today!
Lead Lorain City Volunteer Bambi Dillon and Jeff Keruski, director of student and family engagement, are asking for volunteers to help facilitate our upcoming pantries. If you, or someone you know, is willing and able to volunteer their time, we ask that you reach out to Ms. Dillon via email at [email protected] or by phone at 440-654-8853 to sign up to volunteer. Because of “social distancing” orders from Governor Mike DeWine, we are asking for 10 volunteers for each pantry. Feel free to sign up for our next, future and/or multiple pantries, if you are willing. If you are considering volunteering, we do ask that you do keep in mind a couple of things: We will be holding the pantry outside so dress accordingly. Duties include lifting, stocking, and other duties as assigned at the day of the event. Pantries operate from 4-6 p.m. You may be asked to arrive earlier/stay later than the scheduled times.

Firelands School District families are in need of help. During their food distribution, it became apparent that those in the community that were already struggling, are being dealt an even harder blow by all that has happened. In response to this, the school will attempt to provide each family a box of food next Tuesday when they stop by to pick up their child’s lunches next week. This Friday afternoon, the doors by the Firelands Elementary School gym will be open from 2:30-4:00pm to accept your donations of non-perishable food items such as pasta, canned soups/fruits/vegetables, cereal, peanut butter and nutritious snacks (granola bars, nuts, dried fruit). (Please no glass containers and make sure items are not expired). In addition, if you have extra boxes that you can donate for packing food, those will be accepted as well. On Monday, March 23 at 3:30 pm, Firelands could use some volunteers to sort and pack boxes. We will limit the number of volunteers to 10 in order to not exceed current guidance.
