HUMAN CARE MINISTRIES
October 9, 2014
Elissa Sommer, HCM Director, 206-909-0159, firstname.lastname@example.org
All HCM gifts may be placed in the Commons Mission Box.
COATS, HATS AND GLOVES DRIVE - During the month of October we will be collecting warm coats, hats and gloves-both NEW and OLD. The NEW items will be used for our Giving Tree. Our new coat supply for this year is low right now. The USED items will be shared with our homeless friends. Used coats need to be laundered, in good condition (free of stains and tears).
BLESSING BAGS - Have you given away your bag? The ziplock kits we made on Thrivent Sunday for those in need are available in the church office. Feel free to pick up a few to have in your car for when you have an opportunity to brighten someone's day! If you have a great story to share from your experience of giving a bag, please email the church office.
LAST CALL FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES! The following items are still needed for our School Kits: ball point pens, rulers, and 70-sheet spiral notebooks.
SERVICE OPPORTUNITY -MARK YOUR CALENDARS! HCM is putting together school kits for LWR. This is a great family activity. Come and join in the fun! Meet in the Fellowship Hall on Monday, October 27th, from 6:30-8:30 pm.
CLOTHING DONATION GUIDELINES - We are currently only accepting the following: baby clothes, warm jackets or fleece, jeans, nicer work clothing. Other clothing items can be taken directly to the charity of your choice.
NEED - There is a need for a washing machine and a refrigerator. Please contact Elissa if you can help with either.
THANKS - HCM would like to thank all of you for your generous gifts of time, donations, and money. You enable our church to share the love of Jesus with so many!
