Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. Matthew 25:37-40
Oswego Presbyterian Church is strong supporter of the Kendall Country Food Pantry in their efforts to provide food and household items to low income people in Kendall County. Everyone is invited to bring canned goods and other items for the food pantry and place them in the collection bins on the donation cart in the main hallway. The top-10 list of non-cash items needed follows: toilet paper, ketchup, sugar, dish soap, laundry soap, cleaning supplies, canned fruit, paper towels, cooking oil and shampoo/conditioner. In the summer months, fresh vegetables and fruits can be brought in as well.
Each year we also have volunteers in Oswego's Prairie Fest Parade (on Father's Day Sunday) pushing "Tons of Love" shopping carts and collecting cash and food items for the food pantry.
