In an effort to assist the hungry in our area especially as costs continue to rise, the elders have approved the placement of a collection container in the narthex. The items collected will be given to The Emergency Assistance Center (TEAC) which is a network partner of the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank and located in Macedonia. TEAC serves Northfield Center, Sagamore Hills, Macedonia, Twinsburg, Reminderville, Richfield, Peninsula, Hudson, and Boston Heights. TEAC is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau.
If you are able to give, the following is a list of the items most needed by TEAC. This is not an all inclusive list and all non-perishable items are accepted. Please check expirations as they cannot accept expired food items:
Food: Canned Fruit and Vegetables, Instant Potatoes, Mac and Cheese, Ramen Noodles, Peanut Butter, Pasta, Rice and Rice Mixes, Jar/Canned Tomato and Spaghetti Sauces, Canned Soups, Applesauce Cups, Instant Oatmeal, Cake Mixes and Rrosting.
