RCS Cares | 2 Weeks, 2 Ways
November is a month we love to take the opportunity to give and put into practice our value of serving the community! Starting this week, we are accepting both donations for our annual Food Drive and Operation Christmas Child.
Need: Sending food to salvation army to give to families in our community in need of food and sustenance during this season.
When: November 6th – November 17th. Food needs to be turned in by 8:30am on Friday, November 17th

What: We will be collecting non-perishable food for the Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank.
Non-perishable Food Needs:
o Meals in a can
o Soup, etc. in cans, preferably with pop-tops
Why: We are so excited to bless those who come to the food bank! God is going to be working through our students to feed our neighbors.
