FOOD FOR THOUGHT - Let's get out and serve our neighbors who are hungry. Join us at Food For Thought at Trinity Episcopal Church, 316 Adams St. in downtown Toledo on Friday, July 15th at 6:00pm. We will help to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and pack lunches with other volunteers.  It only takes about 1 hour, and it means so much to someone who might otherwise go hungry. A sign-up sheet will be available at worship service on upcoming Sundays.  Any questions, contact Patti Lusher at 419-349-6333 or plusher5231@gmail.com.
