Thanksgiving Serving Opportunities


Fall Food Drive

Entire Month of November     

November is Perimeter's month to fill the shelves of our local coops so no child goes to bed hungry. We have an opportunity to love generously those less fortunate than we are. Pick up a grocery bag from one of the entrances, fill it with some of the items from the most needed list, and return it to the brown donation bins located at each of the main entrances. 

National Homelessness Awareness Month

Entire Month of November

November is National Homelessness awareness month. Did you know that on a given day there are at least 200,000 children who have no place to live? Rainbow Village helps end the cycle of homelessness by providing temporary housing and training for families to get them back on their feet. Visit our website for ways you can pray for Rainbow Village this month.
