January Mission Minutes 2022
Thank you to all for your extreme generosity and support of the December mission projects! The Pajama Program and Distributing Dignity collections will be picked up the week between Christmas and New Year’s by the representatives from those organizations. They shared their gratitude via our email communications. How wonderful it is to be able to be witnesses to our Lord through remembering and giving to those in need!
The mitten tree was beautifully decorated with scarves, mittens, gloves, hats, and socks! The boxes and bags surrounding the tree were filled with donations from Haviland Avenue School. Thank you to Dianne Geissler for her help coordinating with the school. The following pictures show the HAS tree and Logan’s- a wonderful community connection that will help keep people warm this winter. The items will go to the Center for Family Services and Volunteers of America.
January and February Mission Projects
Our focus will be on our food pantry – please see Food Pantry article below. We will also begin the Church World Service Blanket Fund Collection later in the month so please watch the weekly church bulletin for updates!
Thank you for the generous support for Logan’s many mission activities throughout the year. May you enjoy a happy and healthy New Year!
Corinne Latini, Elder, Mission Commission
On 12/12/21, our pantry visitors received an assortment of Christmas gifts! Each visitor received a $15.00 Acme gift card, a treat bag of assorted chocolates donated by the Murray family, and a handmade, reusable shopping bag that we purchased from Room for Luke (see Corinne Latini or Ellen Dost for more information on this organization).
The top 7 most needed/used/requested items:
- Laundry detergent 5. Canned chicken, canned tuna, canned meats
- Dish detergent 6. Fruit juice (regular and low sugar)
- Tissues 7. Coffee
- Snack crackers (Examples: saltines, graham crackers, assorted snack crackers like Ritz or Goldfish)
At this time, we do not need any canned vegetables. In addition to the list above, our visitors would appreciate donations of fresh fruits and/or vegetables. If you can help provide these items on any 2nd or 4th Sunday of any given month, please see Lori Corker for more details.
Thank you for supporting Logan’s food pantry. The visitors are always so grateful and wished to express their gratitude to the entire congregation. Whatever you can contribute is appreciated and if you aren’t able, prayers for the pantry visitors are always welcome and just as vitally important!
Gratefully, Lori Corker, Food Pantry Co-Chair with Corinne Latini; Mission Commission
