JULY 2016: THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS

The Elk Grove Presbyterian Church Food Pantry sincerely thanks you for your generous donation of 21 bags of assorted groceries, which were delivered to them on May 23, 2016.

JULY 2016: OUR FIRST GARDEN DONATION

Do you remember in the spring when your Sunday School children planted a garden on the south side of our church?  Well, that garden is growing strong - and turning out produce. 

This month (July) Christus Victor made its first fresh produce donation of the summer to the food pantry.  We donated 10 cucumbers, 2 garlic bulbs, 3 green peppers, 23 tomatoes, 103 cherry tomatoes, and basil to the Elk Grove Presbyterian Church Food Pantry.
