We will have a noisy offering to benefit our food shelf initiative for hungry families at Ramsey. Also, in addition to bringing coins to benefit the food shelf on Feb. 7, food donations are welcome every week. We’re in special need of these items to complete the food-filled backpacks for the Ramsey families: rice, canned meat: chicken or tuna, canned fruit, cereal: Cheerios, Rice Krispies or Mini Wheats. Thank you for donations already received!
