We Support F.I.S.H.: Please put non-perishable fruit, soup, or canned or packets of powdered milk in your cart next time you are shopping and bring them to the plastic bins in the narthex marked for F.I.S.H. Another way you can help is by saving your egg cartons; they get eggs donated in bulk and need the cartons for distributing to needy families.
