SPL Hunger Warriors New Group

Today, SPL Hunger Warriors are starting a fantastic group called COG: Community of Goodness. Mary and her service dog Chico have observed that SPL Hunger Warriors need 30 to 60 monthly donors of Goodness to raise our foods needed by Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church at 2928 Scranton Road in Cleveland for their neighborhood Food Program. Rev. Jerry-Witt Jablonski sent St. Paul Lutheran Church Members a glowing letter of Thanksgiving for our September food gifts.

How To Join COG: Community of Goodness

Sign up to be a monthly 6 items or more Donor to the COMMUNITY OF GOODNESS through food gifts of cereal, wide noodles, cans of vegetables, peach slices, beef stew, corned beef, SPAM, chicken breast, jars of Peanut Butter and grape jam. We already have 8 known families that are members of COG: Community of Goodness. Sign-up at the SPL Hunger Warriors Table Saturday/Sunday – October 14/15. You can also call or email Mary at 440-871-7067 or marycaresmuch@yahoo.com.
