"Empty Our Cups"
Soup-er Bowl Sunday Drive Through
Mahalo for your donations at last Sunday’s Soup-er Bowl Sunday! Eighteen church members participated in the drive-through and dropped off canned goods for The Food Basket. Blessings were given by Pastor Joe, and the ladies received Valentine’s Day flower arrangements made by Kiki Rycraft and Fern Yamane. Members in various care homes were also presented with flower arrangements.
Additional Drop-off Days for Canned Goods
We still collect canned goods for the Hawaii Island Food Basket every week. You may drop off your donations at the church on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 9am-12 noon. Pastor Joe (808-785-4822) will be near or at the chapel during these days. You may also drop off the canned goods with the Women’s Fellowship during their store hours from 10am-2pm. 😊
Our next workday is Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Bring your own snacks and drink. Take breaks on your own and we will leave as soon as everything is done and cleaned and put away.
COVID-19 UPDATE FOR THE HAMAKUA COAST
While you are out and about in the community:
Wear a mask; sanitize your hands frequently; and safe distance!
There are still no cases from Hilo to Honokaa, but the variant virus was found on Oahu and Maui. The case on Maui could not be traced to travel. Therefore, please be vigilant and take all precautions.

Only essential workers and seniors 75 years or older will be given priority at this time.
