Free Meals for Kids

Gilsum STEAM Academy has been added as one of the meal distribution sites for the school district.  So, beginning Monday, April 6th, families have the opportunity to drive to the school between 11:30-12:30pm and pick up lunches for the kids. 

Sarah Hartmann will be the contact person and will be handing out the lunches each day. Any questions? Call her at the school 352-2226.

Food Assistance

Good afternoon neighbors!
Several volunteers (members of the Gilsum Recreation Committee, the Gilsum Congregational Church, with the help of others) in town are wondering if there are members of our community who could use a little bit of assistance during this uncertain time.
The group is willing to collect and distribute food and necessary items to assist families in need.
Please send this page a private message or email
Non-perishables and household necessity items can be left in a donation bin in front of the Church door.  Thank you!

For those that can help out, please leave items in the box outside the Gilsum Congregational Church.
Thank you

As we follow the rapidly evolving news, it became abundantly clear that
we needed to cancel the 5th anniversary Adult Bingo Night. We all mean too much to each other here in Gilsum! We challenge you to stay home and
play other games that night such as a board game, card game, jigsaw
puzzle, or test your brain with a puzzle book! We want you to smile and
have fun just like you do on bingo nights.
We are hoping circumstances allow us to all celebrate our 5th year
anniversary with you on July 18th. Until then… play it safe, and be well.
