Mission Moments- March 2021

Church World Service Blanket Fund

Due to the winter weather that affected some of our February Sundays, we will continue the collection for the blanket fund through March 14th. Envelopes will be in the bulletin this week and they are on the table in the family life center. You can also mail in your donation and designate it for the blanket fund. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed as we help to fulfill the motto of “blanket the world with love”. Here is the link to CWS website that includes the video that we showed last Sunday. https://cwsblankets.org/

The cost of a blanket is $10. (If paying by check, please make it payable to Logan Memorial Presbyterian Church with blanket fund in the memo section.)

Souper Bowl of Caring Update

Thank you for your support of the Souper Bowl of Caring!  We are still tallying up the donations so the totals will be in next month’s newsletter. Monetary donations will be sent to the Cathedral Kitchen for the wonderful work they do in Camden and the cans of soup are for Logan’s food pantry. http://www.cathedralkitchen.org/

Support for Officer McClausland’s Family

Our Session approved sending a gift card to Nicole McClausland, widow of Audubon police officer Michael McClausland. His tragic death earlier this month reminds us how fragile life is and how important it is to be present for others. We want to let the family know that we care and in some small way, that we can help to meet any needs they have during this difficult time.

Church World Service Hygiene Kits

The hygiene kits will be an on-going project which will continue through the spring. Here is a list of supplies and this year, we are trying something new- you can make a complete kit, or you can donate individual items. Church World Service is very specific about what items go into the kit and how to put it together. The collection boxes will be in the mission area for both completed kits and individual supplies. (If you are donating individual supplies, leave them in the package, if completing the kit, follow the instructions.)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • One hand towel measuring approximately 15″ x 28″ to 16″ x 32″ (no fingertip, bath, dish towel or micro-fiber)
  • One washcloth
  • One wide-tooth comb removed from the package
  • One fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package
  • One bath-size bar of soap in the wrapper
  • One toothbrush in the package
  • Ten standard size Band-Aids

All items need to fit inside a one-gallon plastic zipper closure bag. Remove the excess air from the bag and seal before boxing. Do NOT add any extra items or toothpaste. A tube of extended expiration date toothpaste will be added to each hygiene kit just prior to its final journey. (Please include two dollars to cover shipping costs)
