AYER -- St. Andrew's Episcopal Church has recently donated to Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at Devens through two different drives: the annual Backpack and School Supplies drive and the ongoing "Green Bag Collection."

Each year, Loaves and fishes puts out a call for school backpacks and supplies for their youngest clients. This year, St. Andrew's parishioners donated 19 backpacks and carloads of supplies with which to fill them.

The "Green Bag Collection," which began this summer, collected 200 pounds of food and personal care items for Loaves and Fishes. Reusable green bags are available for parishioners to take home to fill and then return on collection Sundays. This ongoing initiative helps to keep the food pantry stocked.

St. Andrew's is located at 7 Faulkner in Ayer.

Sunday School starts at 9:15 am and the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist begins at 9:30 am. All are welcome.
