Giving at Christmas
If you have no other priorities, consider giving a little food in a package to your local food-bank.
Within our reach we have the hungry, oppressed and the needy. Some have earthquake or flood calamities. Most have economic stress and uncertainty.
If we have food, surely we can give. Then on Monday, when the food-bank opens, deliver your parcel to the food bank.
You may have many priorities. After all, it’s Christmas. Weigh up your priorities and if, in a calm and peaceful moment, you can find time, share that which you have spare.

Businesses that have emergency food, please give all your food to the food-bank. Replenish your emergency stock in January.
