Resurrection Breakfast on Easter Sunday

Resurrection Breakfast on Easter Sunday

We are planning a SouthWest Spring Fling on Saturday May 12 at the Mission, volunteers needed and welcomed! We would like to “sell tables” for artisans to sell their wares! Foodie tables welcomed as well!

Would you like to sponsor a table for someone or perhaps support the Spring Fling Snack Bar.

All proceeds to support Breakfast club, SW Children special events, our food projects and supporting community in economically challenging times.

Spring Cleaning for the SW Spring Fling?  We are looking for kitchen items and household items, appliances, tools, sports items, intact toys, games and puzzles – if you have any big items, please contact Darlene or Sheila.  

There is a gentleman living alone on a fixed income in our community. He is undergoing oral cancer treatments and is in need of BOOST (with protein preferred), if you have some to spare or have coupons for BOOST – contact Darlene.

SouthWest has been supporting several newly arrived families into the area with food and clothes, plus with March being a long month and many children home over Spring Break, several emergency baskets were put together, thus, the SouthWest community shelves are in need of canned items, pastas, cereals and dry goods. All donations are welcomed! Drop them off at the church, or Mission or if you have a few bags of groceries, contact Darlene for pick-up.

Mini-market is seeking recyclable grocery bags. If you have any to donate, please drop off at the Mission. Large Planters are also needed. If you have any to give, please drop off at the Mission, or call the office.

Nota bene: When we get donations we need to store them, so if you have a few large plastic storage  bins to offer please let the office know and arrangements can be made to pick them up.
