DID YOU KNOW.....
With the economy as it is, it is often hard to make ends meet. Many families simply do not have enough to eat. New Life Missionary Baptist Church, located at 2321 17th St. S.W., operates a Food Bank every third Thursday of the month from 10 AM. until 12 Noon. Beginning this month (August) they are also offering hot meals every fourth Tuesday of the month from 4 PM until 6 PM. If you have any questions, or would like to make a donation to the church to help cover their costs, please call the Church at (330)-745-1245.
There are many other places that offer help in our community. The Church on the Boulevard, located at 754 Kenmore Boulevard, holds a Food Pantry on the first and third Mondays of the month. They also provide a free Community Dinner on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.
