Opportunities to Help

If you were unable to fill out the card that was available in worship services for a couple weeks, just contact Gene LeVasseur, Director of Worship, 336-2942, ext. 40, or email@example.com, and let him know you’re interested.
Another Food to You distribution is coming up, on Thursday September 23, with opportunities for OSL volunteers to help out. This will be a drive-through distribution, with volunteers having limited contact with recipients, at First Lutheran Church (Dakota Avenue at 12th Street). Masks are suggested and gloves will be provided. Full details and sign-up sheet are at the Welcome Center.
OSL supports the Food to You Mobile Food Pantry by donating various food items to help local families in need, and helping with food distributions. The item for September is hearty soup; for October, any kind of cereal. Always appreciated are toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant for Hygiene Packs. Place your donations in the marked bins near the south entrance, by the Library.
