November and December is the Angel tree, where we support children through WestCap’s Holiday Gift Program.
A Blessing Box is a mini food pantry filled with nonperishable food and other essential items. Currently the most popular items are toilet paper, tissues, laundry soap pods and trash bags.

A note book is in the box where suggestions for items to be added to the box and requests for prayers may be written.
