On the third Saturday of every month, a group from Farmville Baptist has been helping out at FACES (Farmville Area Community Emergency Services), our local food pantry, in packing bags of food for our neighbors. Last Saturday, we bagged over 800 bags of food. FACES is located at 416 N. South St. (the address sign on the picture is wrong!). We try to get to FACES by 7:30 am, and we’re usually finished by 10:30 a.m.
FACES appreciates ANYTHING you can give, but your monetary donations go farther than your food donations. If you give FACES a $10.00 donation, they can buy up to 67 pounds of food! For every 15¢ you donate, they can buy one pound of food from the Virginia Food Bank! All of the money you donate goes to purchasing food and making FACES run, as all workers are volunteers.
To donate, write a check payable to “FACES” to:
P.O. Box 644
Farmville, VA 23901
