  • June Mission of the Month

    DMARC Food Pantry

    We will be collecting monetary donations, as well as non-perishable food items for the DMARC (Des Moines Area Religious Council) food pantry in the month of June. During the summer months the need for donations is greater due to students being out of school. Note: proteins are always a great donation (such as peanut butter or canned meat). Please place non-perishable food items in the Mission of the Month bins at any location, or give monetarily by writing “June Mission of the Month” in your check memo or using a special offering envelope found at the CONNECT.
