THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE
Happy Fall! As the weather begins to turn, we are preparing for winter and for continued social distancing due to the pandemic.
Nonetheless, we continue to pursue our focus on improving people's lives at the Jizo Peace Center.
It is time for our yearly food and blanket drive as we collect and then distribute 15 bags to homeless shelters on Black Friday.
If you have non-perishable food and blankets, we welcome your donations. Call if you need to have things picked up.
