We had 173 shoeboxes that were packed by church members, friends, co-workers, grandparents, and anyone interested in those shoeboxes. We didn’t quite make it past last year’s number but are happy with 173 boxes!! Please pray that these boxes go to the right child, that they will be blessed and that they will learn about God’s love! Again, THANKS for your support! We could not have done it without you!


Start collecting supplies now! Help us to collect 200 boxes!

“The Foley CROSS Center is always in need of evening volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer helping distribute food or organizing donations such as clothing, etc. the center would love to see you.  Volunteer evening hours are every Monday from 6pm – 8pm.  If you are interested, simply park behind the center and knock on the back, green doors.  Someone will open the door and let you in. Then you will be training on the job.  The staff at the Center is great to work with and truly appreciate your time volunteering.”


Thank you, The Deacons

The Foley CROSS Center is looking for a member of our church to join their board.  This is an amazing opportunity to become involved in the community, learn more about the food shelf system, and understand the impact to families that have been helped over the years.  Interesting bit of history: Our church ancestors helped make the local CROSS Center possible.  If you are interested in this board position, please contact a Deacon for more information. 


Sally Lloyd, Barb Schwarzkopf, April Warmbold, Joyce Rife, Bob Cross or Jan Matvick.
