This year we will be collecting food for the Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry. The pantry supports the Irving area and is a ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Irving. Empty baskets can be picked up at church beginning Sunday, November 1, along with a list of suggested items (also listed below). Please select from the list of items (all nonperishable) and return the filled baskets to church by Sunday, November 15. They will be delivered to the pantry on Thursday, November 19, at 10:00 a.m. (delivery volunteers will be needed).

We are also invited to help serve at Good Shepherd's annual community Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, November 21. Over 300 neighbors are served at the dinner each year. Help is needed between 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Good Shepherd is located at 2620 West Grauwyler Road in Irving, about a mile southeast of Irving Mall.
