March Churchwide Collection

We will be donating Easter baskets for the children of StepUp, Loaves & Fishes and Mayview. Please come to the Witherspoon building to pick up an empty basket. Each basket will have a tag as to the gender and age of the child it will go to. Please fill the basket with goodies and return to Gloria Johnson’s office (W301) by Friday, March 24. Suggested items: toiletry items, cute socks, candy, nail polish, snack foods such as chips, crackers, and juice boxes, stuffed animals and gift cards to fill a basket.

These are the items most needed: Shampoo • Body Wash • Deodorant • Comb • Toothbrush (sealed) • Toothpaste • Disposable Razors (multi-pack) Shaving Cream • Acetaminophen (Tylenol or generic) 4% Lidocaine cream (Bengay or generic) • Insect Repellent Sunscreen (SPF 50) • Hand Towel • Wash Cloth Shirts: long-sleeve light colored cotton shirts in small, medium, or large (no 100% polyester, no dark colors, no short sleeve, no XL please) • Pants: work pants in waist sizes 30 to 34 Socks and shoes: sizes 7-10.

Please drop off items in the marked red bin in from of the Witherspoon Building before March 16. Thank you!

Large Size Diapers
The Diaper Train, located at St. Saviour’s, has lost its supply resource for diapers and they are trying to meet the unexpected shortfall. The urgent need is for sizes 4, 5 and 6. Please diapers in the collection crates in the connector.

Let’s Feed the Animals
Companion Animal Ministry is collecting dog and cat food for the SPCA of Wake County’s AniMeals program. The SPCA will give your donations to Resources for Seniors to distribute to home-bound seniors and disabled adults. Your participation will help local citizens in need from having to choose between feeding their pets or paying bills, buying medicine or buying enough food to feed themselves and their families. Donations of dog and cat food can be put in the CAM/SPCA collection tub in The Connector.

Food Needed
Remember that food is always needed in our local pantries. When shopping pick up a couple of extra cans to place in the crate in The Connector. Canned meat, pasta, pinto beans, kidney beans and fruit are always needed. No glass or open containers please.
