Lutheran Church of the Cross adding much needed Coat Drive to 2nd Annual Food Float in West Fest Parade

Lutheran Church of the Cross (LCC) members will be collecting donations for the Great Plains Food Bank and the Salvation Army during the West Fest Parade. In 2011 the church had their first food float benefiting the food bank. "We were overwhelmed by the community support from the good people of West Fargo," said Pastor Joel Baranko of LCC.  "The number of donations we received during the parade by far surpassed our expectations!"

This year the Salvation Army needs help collecting winter coats and accessories and the church has decided to add these items to the Collection Float.  "We look at the recent announcement by the Salvation Army as an opportunity for us to step up to the plate within our community," said Baranko. "We already have a collection float, we'll be happy to add winter coats and accessories to our collections!"

 Watch for the LCC Collection Float again on Sept. 15, 2012 and help them fill the float with non-perishable food items for the Great Plains Food Bank and winter coats and accessories for the Salvation Army. 

For more information contact Baranko at 701-282-0514.
