Partnering with Marco Island’s Our Daily Bread Food Pantry and Winn Dixie, the first event will be a food drive at Winn Dixie, 625 N. Collier, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Food and monetary donations will be collected by volunteers in the front of Winn Dixie. The volunteers will then load the Our Daily Bread truck. Drive up donations also accepted.
A critical needs list will be available on the day of the event and at ourdailybreadfoodpantry.com. Jean Rowles, worship leader and creative arts director at MPC, will oversee this event. “Marco Church won’t be having our regular worship service, rather we will worship the Lord as we serve others,” said Rowles.
“Anyone can participate in all three events. All ages are welcome, as there is something for everyone.”
