During the month of January we will collect Peanut Butter to help supply the food pantry at TNO. Please be sure that food items provided are not past their expiration date. By law TNO cannot give out expired food therefore we have to throw away any expired items we receive. Items should be placed in the receptacle marked "Topeka North Outreach Donations" in the Narthex.
During June, July, and August we will collect items for the TNO Operation Backpack program. The list of those items needed was included in the June Beacon and is also posted on bulletin boards in the Narthex. Please place items in the receptacle marked "Topeka North Outreach Donations" under the Usher's table in the Narthex.
A Special Door Offering will be taken Sunday, May 10 (in conjunction with Mother’s Day) to benefit the new Summer Backpack Program being undertaken by TNO. They will provide a total of 2500 weekend food sacks to children during the 10 weeks of summer. TNO has received a donation to help them get started but will need additional funding if they are to provide weekly sacks to all of the 250 children estimated to be a part of this program. Therefore, Calvary and other TNO member churches will be taking a special collection on Mother’s Day to “help a mother (or father) feed their children.”
