Request for Assistance from Luke 3:11 Share Center

Luke 3:11 Share Center is a ministry with which our church has been involved in various ways over the past several years. During this current time of crisis, Luke 3:11 Share Center is experiencing increased demand for food and decreased resources to provide that food. They are asking for help in these ways:
