"Please keep the donations coming!" CSC addresses hidden hunger in our local communities.
We collect food items year round to help address the hidden hunger in our community. Our large donation bin is in the closet between the Lobby and chapel. When we collect enough food items we will make sure it gets to the Lakewood First United Methodist Church/Broken Loaf Food Pantry to help with their weekly distributions.
