The Sherman Congregational Church is collecting non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving to donate to 18 senior families through Hungerford Place, Sherman's food pantry.

Gravy, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables (including sweet potatoes), rice, instant potatoes, instant dressing, puddings, Jell-o, canned fruit, cake mixes and other non-perishable needed for a Thanksgiving feast may be dropped off in the basket in narthex of the church at 6 Church Road through Nov. 22.

Small jars and boxes are preferred, as the meals will be for seniors, not large families.
