Stage Coach Players (SCP) continues to “Join Together” with the local community this season as they once again be collecting food for and household items giving away fabric if you are looking to create your own masks on the second and fourth Tuesdays in March. The collection to be held on Tues., April 20, 2021 will run from 4 to 6 p.m. and be held in the theatre’s back parking lot. The address is 126 S. 5th Street in DeKalb.
This week’s food donations will be going to New Hope Baptist Church Food Pantry. New Hope Baptist Church’s Food Pantry is dedicated to helping anyone in need. It is important that during this pandemic we continue to help each other and serve our community, so there are no residential requirements. For available times, please visit their website. SCP will be accepting non-perishable items such as canned meat, vegetables, and fruit along with boxed food and items in plastic containers. We are also accepting paper products. Please no glass containers. Because of the current virus concerns as with many local food pantries, there is a shortage of necessary items for those in need.
SCP continues its partnership with Humans For Hope (Chicago) which will continue through the end of the month. Humans For Hope is dedicated to advocating and assisting our friends in transition and living on the streets. Their focus is love, community, self-healing, assistance, community education to help in breaking stigmas and more. SCP will be collecting monetary donations for them along with hygiene items, new or cleaned used clothing, blankets.
