Veterans Day Celebrations at Grand View
Food Pantry Donations
During the months of October and November, we will be collecting food and personal items for the Veterans Food Pantry.
Suggested items are: canned goods, pasta, boxed meals, laundry & cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, and men's black socks. Please feel free to drop off your items at any time on the stairs in the sanctuary. The Veterans Food Pantry serves local Veterans and their families who are in need throughout the year. Our goal is to deliver 500 items!
If you have any questions, please contact Deborah Schmidt: 563-581-2830.
Veterans Day Celebrations
Grand View will again honor living veterans at all three Worship Celebrations on Sunday, Nov. 11, which is Veterans Day.
Veterans and their families will be asked to provide a picture & brief description of their service to be displayed in the Gathering Space.
For more information contact Art Miller: email@example.com.
This is an example of what can be supplied to Grand View for the Celebrations.
Put your photo and bio in the basket on the Connection Counter.
