Grace College sponsors ninth Supermarket Sweep on Wednesday

Grace College and Mission Point Community Church in Winona Lake are partnering to sponsor the ninth-annual Supermarket Sweep on Wednesday at Owen’s Market, 2211 E. Center St., Warsaw.

Supermarket Sweep is an easy way to help local families in a tangible way. Participants shop for non-perishable food items and baby products which are then donated to organizations that support community members in need. This year, donations will go to Combined Community Services, the Salvation Army and Heartline Pregnancy Center.

The community is invited to participate; grocery lists will be provided to the public from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Owen’s. From 8:30 to 11 p.m., Grace College students, faculty and staff will compete in teams for a variety of prizes as they vie to purchase the most food and products for locals in need.

Last year’s Supermarket Sweep raised more than $24,000 worth of food and products in 11 hours.
