CAVETOWN —  Christ Reformed United Church of Christ in Cavetown collected and distributed food again this year, part of its annual Harvest Home program.

In October, church members began collecting nonperishable foods. On Sunday, Nov. 13, these foods were displayed at the church altar along with apples donated by Mountain Valley Orchard. After the service, more than 200 nonperishable food items were delivered to the food bank at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Smithsburg. The apples were donated to Homewood in Williamsport.

Also, Sunday school classes collected nonperishable foods, made Thanksgiving and Christmas cards for nursing home residents and, for the second year, bought and wrapped Christmas presents to local needy families.
