Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Leland has given the Northeastern Iowa Synod nearly $600 to help congregations in the synod set up “Little Free Pantries” in their communities. This money will be shared as grants to congregations to defray the cost of building and installing a Little Free Pantry.
Already, 18 congregations and ministries have established 19 Little Free Pantries in this synod to allow congregations and community members to “leave what they can and take what they need,” including food, personal hygiene products, and school supplies. The Little Pantries allow people to give and take anonymously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
To learn more about how to access or contribute to this grant, please contact Pastor Mark Anderson through email or by phone, 319-352-1414.
