The Russell County Food Pantry meets the most basic of needs, serving on average 48 families per month. With need outweighing resources, St. John Lutheran Church in Russell will be celebrating “God’s Work, Our Hands” Sunday by collecting non-perishable food items for the Russell County Food Pantry.
The Community Food Drive will be held Sunday, September 22 starting at 1:00 pm.
Those living in the Russell city limits are asked to place items in a plastic grocery bag and place on your porch. Volunteers will collect the food items from porches and deliver them to the Russell County Food Pantry. Please make sure donated items have not passed their printed expiration dates.
If you are missed on Sunday, or forgot to place your items on your porch, please bring your donations to the church office. Those living outside the city limits are also encouraged to drop donations off at the church office. For more information on this program, please contact St. John Lutheran Church at 785-483-5358.
