MARCH MISSION COLLECTION: The Food Pantry in Zearing has been very busy helping many in our communities with food and other essentials. We are currently spending our limited funds buying groceries. We need your help and support to be able to furnish things that are not food, but are still needed. We would appreciate it if you could donate things like bar soap, shampoo, toilet paper, Kleenex. They will go to the Zearing Food Pantry to help the residents of Zearing, McCallsburg, St. Anthony and Clemons.
