Letter: Donate to local community center

-A A +A

 The Community Service Center, Inc. was created by local churches to minister to the needy of Marion County. The First Christian Church in Lebanon is generous enough to allow us to work out of their building.  We provide emergency help with food, clothing, rent, utilities and prescriptions. We are a strictly a volunteer group using funds and supplies donated by some of the area churches, civic organizations and other generous benefactors. 

Each year Alan Shawn Feinstein, founder of the Feinstein Foundation, gives organizations like ours an opportunity to increase our funds to help others by participating in the Feinstein offer. The foundation will share a proportion of $1 million with agencies feeding the hungry across the nation. Each agency will receive a donation from the foundation in proportion to the amount collected from donors through the period of March 1 through April 30. These donations can include cash, checks and food items as well as pledges, as long as they were obtained from this challenge.

We would like to encourage all the churches, business and residents of Marion County to meet this challenge by the donation of money or food items to the Community Service Center during March and April. Tax deductible donations may be sent to The Community Service Center at P.O. Box 37, Lebanon, KY 40033 or food items can be brought to the basement of the First Christian Church on Main Street in Lebanon on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday during the hours of 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

May God bless you for all your help.
