We are asking everyone in out church community to please support our “Bundles of Warmth” mission where we make blankets and hygiene kits and deliver them in January to the Penn National horse training community.
mark your calendar for Sunday, January 25, 2015, to participate in the 2nd annual “Bundles of Warmth” church-wide/in-house mission project. The project to make blankets and assemble the bundles of warmth will be on-going from 8 am until completed and you can stop by anytime to help for as long as you wish. Lunch will be available for pur-chase with proceeds off-setting the cost of materials. A sign-up sheet will be placed in the Narthex.
Can’t be available that day? We have several more opportunities to help:
- Join our planning meeting. Sign-up sheet will be placed in Narthex.
- It’s never too early to begin donating items now for the bundles. We are looking for new and gently-used clean blankets, fleece mate-rial from fabric store (2 yards each of coordinating print and solid…JoAnn Fabric coupons come in handy!) to make blankets, adult men’s hats, gloves, socks, and scarves, razors, bars of soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, shampoo, individu-ally-packaged laundry de-tergent (pods or tabs). This year we are looking for full size toiletries (no samples or trial sizes please). Please place your donations in the Bundles of Warmth box located by the Mission’s Table in the Narthex.
- Assist in delivery of these items to Penn National on a Friday after 1/25 (details to follow).
- The “shaking of cans” will be heard during all three church services on 11/09/14. Please consider donating!
- Pray for the continued success of the project.
