Loaves & Fishes
Sun Dec 31

In months with a fifth Sunday, CBS provides a full dinner to fellow Columbians in need through the Loaves & Fishes program. We are serving Sunday, December 31st, and we need donations of food items as well as volunteers to set up, serve, and clean up.
Bring food to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd. (back entrance), before 4:15 pm that day. Volunteers setting up/serving/cleaning up should arrive by 4:30 pm. We expect to serve about 150 people, and the need for volunteers to serve is especially critical.

With questions, please contact Noah at heringmann@missouri.edu or Brent at brentdeelg@gmail.com

The Tikkun Olam committee is pleased to report that we have now matched the first $1,000 donated to our Facebook fundraiser for Magen David Adom. Our grand total is now approaching $2,500.  Thanks to all who donated and to Kelly Durante for organizing the fundraiser.

Kelly will continue the fundraiser through the end of December. Click here to donate.
