Augustana’s Social Ministry Committee invites you to serve at the Ansar Food Pantry on east Colfax, on the third Saturday of each month. Volunteers must be over 10 years old, and wear closed-toe shoes. Plan to carpool from Augustana’s south parking lot at 8:45 a.m. We will work at the pantry and return to Augustana by noon.
Ansar (sponsored by the local Muslim Mosque located on Parker Road) and Augustana have had a history of mutual cooperation since 2009. Like many non-profits, Ansar runs on a little bit of money and a lot of volunteer effort. Ansar had struggled with a good purpose but a troubled building for a number of years until the leaky roof forced them to close. Ansar is reopening at a new location, and Augustana’s Social Ministry is rekindling its relationship. Join us in serving the pantry each third Saturday of the month.
