Central participated with Lutheran, Catholic, and Jewish congregations and Thrivent Financial to gather and prepare 100 food bags for needy families in the Christmas season.  In addition to volunteer help from Mission Chair Darla Petty, Central contributed 100 boxes of stuffing and $875 to help purchase frozen turkeys.  The 100 bags of food will be distributed by the Jerry Doliner Food Bank on December 21.  The photos below show the bags being prepared by Darla and the other volunteers.
