Page 12 March 6, 2013 Snowbirds, you are appreciated! By Maggie & Gene Ross Covenant Lutheran Church This is the time of year many of you, Snowbirds, are planning on returning to your summer homes or on to other destinations. You join us every season and make a vibrant and important part of the Quartzsite Community. You enjoy our beautiful weather and surroundings, our abundance of recreational vehicle and ATV trails and our parks and long term areas. How about those friendships and potlucks, music jams, shows, and vendor shopping? It is all one beautiful package that adds color and fun into your lives. Do you realize how important your presence in this community is? Without you winter visitors and your friends our economy, elderly, homeless and hungry suffer. During the summer this community struggles to keep those in need supplied. For those of you who might have felt hungry or barely made it through a month you know, that food and shelter are on the top of your list. There is little left for much else. Our local restaurants are still over���owing with people who are enjoying our local variety of foods. Our little grocery stores and dollar stores are still ���lled with customers, but that will soon stop as many of these local businesses close in the summer. Last year Covenant Lutheran Church was able to raise enough monies to purchase $350.00 per month to help the Food Bank and Isaiah 58 during the four months of summer. We are now reaching out and asking others to join us in donating non-perishable food items and monetary contributions to help these two important organizations. There are food drop boxes located at various stores in the community. Place a can of soup, a box of noodles, spaghetti sauce, etc. in these boxes once a week or call Maggie or Gene Ross at 360 951-7820 and we will be happy to pick up your donations for you. If you wish to donate money, you can mail your donations to Covenant Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 2820, Quartzsite 85346. Please put a note or mark your check food bank fund. Open your hearts and leave a little bit of your gratitude behind. Thank you all. Maggie & Gene Ross Covenant Lutheran Church -HAUL We sell U BOXES BEST AUTO RV & TRUCK REPAIR S !
