Collections

September Churchwide Collection

This month we are collecting canned meat items to deliver to Urban Ministries Food Pantry. Drop off items in the red bins outside of Witherspoon throughout September.

Haiti School Supply Collection
Blue Collection Bins | The Hub

Our friends at Barye Fe Secondary School in Haiti are headed back to class and essential school supplies are very difficult to find in Haiti.  The youth at White Memorial have undertaken a school supply drive for their fellow students in need. Would you like to help?  Bring the following supplies to church and leave them in the blue collection bins located in The Hub.

Items needed:  Pencils, Black and Blue Pens, Composition Books, Notebook paper, Erasers, Rulers (12” only)

August Churchwide Collection

School Supplies needed! The bell is about to ring, and having new supplies to begin the school year is important to youth and children. Please take advantage of back to school sales. Items always needed:

• 1” and 2” notebooks
• paper
• spiral notebooks
• glue sticks
• colored pencils, pens & pencils
• new backpacks

Drop off items in the red bins outside of Witherspoon throughout August. We will distribute to a variety of agencies we support: Mayview, Loaves and Fishes, etc.

Other Collections

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.
