November Mission Moments
As we approach the season of Thanksgiving, I want you to know how thankful and grateful we are for the support that is given to all of the many mission projects at Logan! Your generosity spreads near and far as we reach out to others through monetary and material donations.
Here is an update on the undies collection for the Center for Family Services in Camden, which surpassed last year’s! Twenty-three pairs of girl’s undies, 13 pairs of boy’s undies, 49 pairs of children’s socks, 10 pairs of women’s undies, 13 pairs of ladies’ socks, 45 pairs of men’s boxers/briefs, 12 men’s T-shirts, and 17 pairs of men’s socks were collected and delivered to the Center on Thursday, October 17th.
CROP Walk Update
Thank you to those who walked in the CROP Walk and we appreciate those who sponsored the walkers, too! The rains came down, but that didn’t stop the walkers – Rev. Don, David Hancock, Meg Murray, Carol Nygren, Patti Pawling and Pat Kalinowski from St. Mary’s Episcopal braved the elements and “walked the walk” to bring awareness to world hunger. So far $1,000 has been raised by the Interboro Ministerium team of churches!
If you are donating by check, please make the check payable to Logan and designate in the memo that it is for the CROP Walk. We won’t be mailing the check to Church World Service for a few weeks so there is still time to donate!
Thanksgiving Food Gift Bags for Our Pantry Patrons
We will be collecting Thanksgiving food items for our pantry visitors again this year. A list of items will be in the bulletin in the coming weeks along with due date. Our pantry guests will also receive an ACME gift card. We give thanks for Shirley Phillips who faithfully coordinates the pantry and is always there for the pantry visitors!
As we gather together in church and in community to celebrate the season and give thanks, please remember those who are in need and while we know that you cannot support all the mission projects, we do ask for your prayers for them!
-Gratefully, Corinne Latini
