Mission Moments for July and August
Thank you for supporting the June mission project by helping to stock up our food pantry! We are grateful to Sam Bunnell and the Audubon Young at Heart Club for collecting items, too. The pantry visitors are always grateful, and we were also able to give them a $15 ACME gift card this month. The need is ongoing so please continue to keep our food pantry in mind as you shop this summer. Many families in the area lose the school- supported supplemental meals for breakfast and lunch that are available to the children during the school year. Our thanks to Lucy, who provided fresh produce for the pantry for several years. Lucy will no longer be doing this, so we are exploring different ways to continue having fresh produce available on pantry Sundays.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the hygiene kit project for Church World Service (CWS). Many needs arise each day in our country and around the world, so the kits will be put to good use and will help to provide some relief to those in disaster areas. Special thanks to Ellen Dost and the Ruth Circle and to Ruth Gamble and the Sunday school class for making a majority of the kits. The Women’s Association paid for the postage to ship the 47 kits to the distribution center in Maryland and the two dollars that we ask you to include in your kit helps CWS ship the them where they are needed.
Please take a moment to read the many thank-you notes posted in the mission area from the projects you supported so far this year- IMA medical supplies (donations from the Soup Suppers), CWS blanket fund, One Great Hour of Sharing, Camden County Women’s Center, and the Voorhees Animal Orphanage!
Summer Mission Project– School may have just ended but we are starting the collection of school supplies for Audubon’s two elementary schools, Mansion Avenue and Haviland Avenue Schools. Whatever you can provide is very much appreciated. The cost of supplies increases each year and we are pleased to support the needs of those in our communities. There is enough stress associated with going back to school to a new class and teacher and we can help alleviate some of that by making sure the children have what they need to begin the new school year.
We will collect supplies through Sunday, August 25th so we can deliver them before the start of school.
Thank you for your generosity and for showing God’s love to others through the support of Logan’s many mission projects!
