Happenings

Potato Drop

Saturday, November 9, 9:00

The potatoes are coming! 40,000 pounds of them will be delivered to our FLPC parking lot, Rockbridge Road side, for us to bag on Saturday, Nov. 9th. These potatoes have been gleaned from NC farms by the Society of St. Andrew and would otherwise go to waste. Our bagged potatoes will be taken to local food pantries to feed our hungry neighbors. If you can come for an hour, two hours or until the job is finished, we would love your help. All ages are welcome. Please sign up here and invite your friends! Questions: jodibeckham@flpc.org
