Call for toiletries at Airdrie Foodbank

The Airdrie Foodbank has now been running at the Church for a few months and this week we provided for 30 people and families.

There is currently a specific need for toiletries, particularly for men but those for women and children would also be appreciated.

If you are able to help, please deposit items in the collection basket in the vestibule.

Please continue to pray for those who attend the Foodbank, as well as those who volunteer each week.

After a night’s sleep we set up the clinic and saw the youngest class. The children were treated for minor ailments and had some dentistry done (sometimes a bit traumatic!!) but for their long term good. Read More
