Cash donations may also be made by, writing a check to North Warren Ministerial Associa- tion. All donations picked up in Norwalk stay here and are taken to the local food pantry maintained at the New Life Lutheran Church. Last year Norwalk carriers col- lected and delivered just over 2,900 pounds of food and non-perishable items. At this time of year the food pantry is really low and in need of restocking. Any and all donations are wel- comed. Items needed are varied. Any non-perishable food such as canned fruits, meats and vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, rice, boxed meals, etc., are wel- come. Paper goods and personal hygiene items are also accepted. If every family in the Norwalk, Cumming and Martensdale delivery area were to donate just one 16 oz. can, that would be over 5,500 pounds of food. When you do your grocery shopping just pick up an extra can or two of vegetables or soup to donate. Let's see if we can exceed last year's donations! PLEASE help those in need. Leave a donation at your mailbox-on Saturda)5 May 10. If you should have any questions, please con- tact Pat Wahl at 981-4928. WALKER BAND Concluded from p. 1 allowed him to let go of his construction and factory jobs. "I was a drummer at a church growing up until one day they called me out front to sing "Grace Like Rain" by Todd Agnew and I never went back to the drums. The more I sang, the more things started opening up." Walker became a conference-based worship leader and after that, the next stop was Nashville. That is where the band and the grace-themed, movement-inspiring songs began to take shape for the album Come To The River. Walker says, "I'm someone living my dream through the grace of God. I'm blessed with a beautiful wife and two children who have walked with me every step of the way. My faith, my family and my country are the most important things in my life. Come To The River tells all that." Come to the Connection Music Festival and hear these young Christian musicians. Technology Is Key For SMBs (NAPS)--Regardless of where you work--whether it's a Fortune 500 company or a five-person office--it's generally understood that with larger budgets comes a more robust selection of ot~ce technology.

Invest in security sdu- tions---Aecording to Good Technology, 75.5 percent of companies support 13YOD (Bring Your Own Device), the practice of using personal mobile devices for work. As this trend is expected to con- tinue, it's essential that busi- nesses have a comprehensive security and management strategy in place. Make sure to invest in the necessary security solutions to help pro- tect sensitive information sent from mobile devices across your network of printers; for example, secure pull print- ing, access controls and other authentication measures. * Increase productivity with workflow ~o]ufions~ Document workflow solutions are key to improving pro- ductivity. Cloud solutions such as HP Flow CM Pro- fessional--accessible directly from the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476--bring enter- prise-grade content man- agement capabilities to grow- ing businesses, furthering collaboration and productiv- ity for SMBs without for- feiting security.
