This Good Samaritan Team responds to requests for assistance from folks within and beyond the congregation. Often, people need a food card, gas card, or phone card. Sometimes they need a ride to a doctor’s appointment. If you can help with your contribution of time or money, that will help us care for some of the least of our brothers and sisters.
