  • Custer Road Food Drive 2019

    “It’s not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.” -W.T. Purkiser

    As we start the holidays it’s time to think of our neighbors in need. The Custer Road Food Drive returns in November to collect nonperishable items. Each week we will be collecting different items throughout the month of November.

    Week 1: Lets bag hunger: return the donation bags with peanut butter, jelly, tuna and other lunch foods.
    Week 2: Be a cereal giver: bring boxes of cereal, breakfast bars and other breakfast foods all month.
    Week 3: It’s a souper week to help the hungry: bring canned goods
    Week 4: Bring rice, dried beans and boxed meals

    Drop off donations in the Mission Donation area in the appropriately marked bin. The donations benefit the Plano Food Pantry and God’s Pantry. Monetary donations for rent, utilities and purchasing perishable foods are also needed. Click here to make a donation or write a check payable to CRUMC and indicate Food Drive on the memo line.

    Casey’s Change Collection:
    Casey Wolfe was a member of the CRUMY youth group from the time he was in the 6th grade until the day he graduated from Plano Senior High. He participated in every choir tour, mission trip, Survivor Weekend, Lock-In and anything else the youth program was doing. Casey would collect change to use the change to “up size” his and other youth’s meals. Casey passed away in 2009, but his love for food and his love to help others in his own way are remembered by many of Casey’s friends and family. Collection containers will at the Welcome Center in The Commons entryway, and in the front office during the month of November. The money collected will be donated to God’s Food Pantry in memory of Casey.
