Help the Episcopal Deacons of Charles County minister to the needs of food-insecure students at the College of Southern Maryland.  


Durham Church has agreed to provide 25 boxes of cereal and 16 bags of apples in April and again in May.


 The April date is coming up fast: contributions are needed by April 5, and ideally should be brought to the church on Easter Sunday (April 4).


Contact Deacon Susan with questions or offers of help.
