Lakeview Community Church “August Challenge”
It’s time for our 2021 “August Challenge” to benefit the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf. Last year, due to the pandemic, we held a “cash only” challenge that was a HUGE success, where we collected over $4000!! The idea of a cash collection was so enthusiastically received that this year we are trying something new. With stocking shelves for fall and winter in mind, GEFS has requested CHUNKY SOUPS for our “August Challenge” focus item. We will also be accepting cash and check donations. If shopping and carrying heavy cans isn’t your thing, just place your monetary donation in the box on the table at the sanctuary entrance or mail a check made out to Lakeview Community Church to 30 Long Pond Road, Rochester, NY 14612. Please write “GEFS” on the memo line. If you are able to shop for chunky soup, but need help carrying it inside on Sunday mornings, someone will be available at the parking lot entrance to help you.
Our goal this year for our “August Challenge” is to collect 1500 cans of soup and $500, or the equivalent. Each can of soup will count for $1.50 (all chunky soup varieties are $1.42 at Aldi).
We have 5 Sundays in August to meet this challenge, so please tell your friends, relatives, and neighbors. We need to involve the entire community to be successful. We will also have a drive-through drop off for soup and $$ on the last Saturday in August from 9am to 1pm. If you have any questions, please call 392-1996 or 392-7534. Let’s get shopping!!
