Think you don't have time to volunteer? Consider these things:
Do you have an old cell phone lying around? The Women's Center can use them for emergency calls only (911).
The next time you go shopping, put in a few extra cans of food, paper/plastic goods (such as plastic forks, knives, spoons; paper plates; napkins; coffee/drink cups; etc.). You can drop them off at Bethel A.M.E. Church, or bring them to the church and a member of the Mission Possible committee will get the items to the proper place.
Next time you come to church, bring a bag of food items (non-perishable) for the various food pantries in southern Illinois.
