Mission Update for July and August 2018

Thank you for supporting our June mission project with helping to stock up our food pantry! The patrons 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.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the hygiene kit project for Church World Service. Special thanks to Ellen Dost and the Ruth Circle for making more than 30 kits. The Women’s Association paid for the postage to ship the kits to the distribution center in Maryland, and Ellen and Paul took care of packing the kits and made sure they were sent on their way. Ruth Gamble’s Sunday school class made 12 kits and along with those from the congregation it brought the total to 49 hygiene kits. 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.

Our July and August project is once again collecting 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 26th so we can deliver them before the start of the school year.

Thank you!  Corinne Latini, Mission Commission
