Food Bank

18.4 Kg of foodstuffs was recently delivered to Barrhead Food Bank and the organisers expressed their gratitude for Eaglesham’s continued support with this essential service.   There is an ongoing requirement for all kinds of tinned and packaged food (fresh produce cannot be used) with emphasis currently for sugar, tinned vegetables, tinned puddings like rice and custard, etc., plus long life milk. However, all food is needed and distributed with little sign of this widely appreciated community support waning across all sections of society whether on a temporary or long term basis. 

 

Contributions have reduced recently and it’s thanks to only a few of our members that we are able to continue supplying. This intimation is something of a reminder to everyone who can, to continue to support the Eaglesham effort. There are two collection points always available: in the vestibules of both the Laird Hall and the Carswell Centre. Both are checked regularly and the contents uplifted and delivered to Barrhead.

 

Please continue to support this very worthwhile cause. It’s a mark of shame on our society that there are people living amongst us who have to choose weekly whether to pay the rent, keep themselves warm and adequately dressed or to buy food. Let’s at least help to take one of those problems from them.

 

Prayer

 

“The Lord will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love.  For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to his people.” Lamentations 3:33 

 

Father God, we remember all those who have suffered through fires and attacks of different kinds.  We thank you for those who serve us by risking their own lives.  Would you bring consolation and healing to those who have lost love ones or suffered injury, and continue to bring communities together for the good of all.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
