DECATUR, MICHIGAN – – – – Van Buren District Library is once again designating the month of November as a time of community caring and sharing. #VBDL Cares November is a month-long event to encourage contributions to food pantries and charitable organizations throughout the library’s service area.

This year’s recipients are the Mattawan Food Pantry, the food pantries at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Bangor and the United Methodist Church, Lawrence; the Love Network at the Bloomingdale Christian Church; Gobles-Kendall Area Ministerial Association, Decatur Human Services, and We Care, Inc., which is affiliated with churches in Covert and South Haven.
