The Nelson Congregational Church announces the recipients of this year's Garrett-Larsen Social Justice Fund awards.
For those among us who find these rising costs becoming prohibitively high – making the purchase of extra groceries or gifts particularly challenging, I would like to encourage you to take advantage in the coming weeks of the Nelson Food Shelf located at Nelson Congregational Church. In addition to providing basic staple items, the Food Shelf is also able to provide gifts cards to nearby grocery stores that can be used for any food items you would like or need.
