In observance of the Lenten Season, many people choose to “give up” something they enjoy as they enter a period of reflection.
An alternative to or perhaps in addition to this observance is to “take on” something new.
If you can help us out, please consider contributing shelf-stable food to ACCA’s (Annandale Christian Community for Action) food pantry during the next 40 days. Inventory at the pantry is very low and demand for food is at a record high.
Consider collecting one item for each day of Lent—40 days yields 40 much-needed items. You may simply leave the items in the Narthex for delivery to ACCA.
