We are currently collecting non perishable food items for the Yates Food Pantry. Donations can be placed in the bin in the Fellowship Hall. The Yates Food Pantry is our local Baptist association’s ministry to help those who need food. We recommend people to it very regularly since we do not have a food pantry on site.
The 3:20 Connect Group grows produce for local food pantries and individuals in need. If you would benefit or know of someone or an agency that would benefit from this service check out the "Fresh Produce Available" sheet in the Breezeway or click HERE.
