Mabel Food Pantry - This Thursday, April 20th, Scheie Lutheran church is collecting food and money for the mabel food pantry. If  the weather is bad, the boxes and containers to fill will be right inside the door on the rug or down the basement steps before the door is opened   Because of animals, nothing should just be left.  WE will have some totes with covers there. If you can't get in or have a question, drop the stuff off with Dode and Bob. The items will be taken in each Thursday by noon.  If there is a need for special things, that will be posted on the door for you to read.  We think this could make a difference for so many families.
