First Lutheran Supports Local Charities
Food Donations for BRICK Ministries
Last spring when COVID-19 was upon us and we recognized the need for face masks, people from First Lutheran, including Joyce Olson and Leann Hess, began sewing masks for distribution locally. Johnson's Store allowed us to begin offering a free face mask in return for a contribution of food for the BRICK Ministries food shelf. Parishioner Laurie Gucinski, who also works at BRICK, has reported that in the last three months she has brought over 256 pounds of food to BRICK, donations from the face masks.
BRICK is open in Cornucopia at the Town of Bell Community Center on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 10am to 3pm. Laurie welcomes additional food donations to BRICK delivered to her house or she will pick it up.
The Fig Leaf Thrift Shop is closed.
Due to a rise in COVID cases on our county, the Fig Leaf is CLOSED at this time.
Have you been spending some quarantine time cleaning and decluttering? The Fig Leaf Thrift Store is now open for business Wednesday-Saturday, 10am-3pm. Face masks are required and shopping capacity is limited to 5 customers.
New donations are accepted only on Mondays with a limit of 3 bags or boxes per person.
Most needed items right now include fall and winter clothing, sweatshirts, puzzles, kitchen items, bedding, towels, and shoes in good repair.
Proceeds from the Fig Leaf come back to area communities in the form of monetary donations.
