To learn what they need this month, please see there webpage at Calendar (stocktonfoodbank.org). We truly thank you kindhearted and generous Rotarians.
- We ask of us all to give from our time, talent, and treasures. If you are unable to give treasure, then time or talent is needed. We need help with set up each week, greeters, notetakers, and shut down. We need someone to lead COG. Does anyone have a desire and ability to give back by organizing and teaching our COG?
