Partnering for Mission and Giving.

Watertown Bread Basket Food Pantry AND the Watertown Food Pantry:

Jennifer Rhodes (volunteer for the Watertown Bread Basket Food Pantry) and Jennifer Bakke (board member on behalf of 1st Congregational UCC for the Watertown Food Pantry) are developing a plan to re-engage member giving of food items starting in July 2022.   Their primary focus  has been discussing the similarities and differences of the two food pantries and how to coordinate giving to both food pantries by identifying items both pantries can use.

To that end, donations will be equally divided between the two pantries.  Look for the special envelopes in the narthex "Bread Baske & food Panrty"
