OUTREACH TO OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN
School will soon
begin. Children need school supplies more than ever during these rough economic
All school supplies are needed, especially back packs and scissors. Person hygiene materials are also important.
Many young students have “accidents” so schools appreciate both boys and girls underwear, socks and
sweatpants. If you will bring items to the undercroft I will sort them and take them to the district office.
[It would be great to have these items at the church as soon as possible.] Thanks in advance…Judy Heaney
OUTREACH COMMITTEE NOTES:
It is the purpose of the Outreach
Committee to provide some of the joy of Christmas to local youngsters
who might not otherwise experience it, especially in these times when many families are not able to buy
gifts for their children.
We have taken a break from meeting
during the summer, but have been acquiring or making special gifts
for girls and boys. We will resume bimonthly meetings in September (12th and 26th) and would welcome
any help you can give us, from dollars to hours!
It is important to collect as many quality toys and items of clothing such as warm jackets, comfortable
shoes and clothes for children who might not otherwise have them. There is a basket in the narthex for
toys and clothing items. We thank all who are willing to help!
WHEN WERE YOU HUNGRY?
Here is a guide to help
us reach out to the hungry through
our Food Cupboard.
Together, we do make a difference.
September - “Tube-a-Sunday” - Please bring cans of tuna fish
October – “Harvest Sunday” - Please bring cans of fruit
November – “Give Thanks” Sunday - Give thanks by giving veggies. Please bring canned veggies: peas, beans etc.
Remember, food given through community
programs to Community Action at best only trickle down to the
Ecumenical Food Cupboard and even then we pay 14 cents a pound transportation cost for it. Instead give
directly to our Food Cupboard and avoid the middle man.
