December 2021 Happenings

Hy-Vee Bag Program
All Saints Lutheran Church Food and Clothing Closet has been selected by local Hy-Vee store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Reusable Bag Program!

For the month of December 2021, All Saints Lutheran Church Food Pantry and Clothing Closet will receive a $1 donation from each purchase of the $2.50 reusable red “My Heart” Bag at the Hy-Vee store located at Hy-Vee 4064 East 53rd Street, Davenport IA.

Many of us use reusable bags when shopping, but have you thought about using these bags as a gift bag instead? Instead of purchasing wrapping paper or gift bags why not purchase a HYVEE “MY HEART” reusable bag and use that to “wrap” presents for Christmas or any other time throughout the year! Purchasing a MY HEART bag will benefit our own food pantry and clothing closet during the month of December!
