Thanksgiving Offering Report
from Sherri Matson

Hi All - 

What a wonderful PVIF service last night (11-20) and so grateful for so many who came and thanks to everyone who participated in music, readings and prayer!  Wayne, Starr and I were discussing last night, and we wondered what the offering collected over the last few years has been.  Thought I would send this little report prior to our monthly meeting.

2018    $582.00 (Split with Acorn Fund)
2019    $531.23 (Split with Pocatello Police Department, Secret Santa)
2020     COVID
2021     Drop-off Food Drive for the Idaho Food Bank

2022     $1069 (Split with The Refuge Warming Center)

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!
