The food drive is one week away!

"ABC13's Share Your Holidays Food Drive has helped people in need during the holiday season for a quarter of a century. During that time, our food drive as collected more than six million pounds of non-perishable foods, fifteen million pounds of produce donated by the Houston Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association, and more than $166,000 in cash contributions. These donations benefit more than three thousand families in the Houston area annually, including more than eight thousand children. . . . All donations will be distributed by Houston Food Bank member charities to families and individuals throughout Houston and surrounding communities."
This food drive is next Wed., Dec. 7 from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. The big distribution day at MoSt Church here in Baytown will be the following Tues., Dec. 13. Typically 300-400+ families are served here at Most on that one big distribution day alone!

MoSt has served as the primary distribution point in Baytown for food gathered in this effort for a number of years now. This year's drive very well could be the biggest ever so we'll need all the help we can get. This is a great activity in which to involve your children! Church, if you're free for even an hour on Dec. 7 or Dec. 13, there will definitely be a place for your service here at MoSt.
