December Churchwide Collection
This month we are collecting toys, coats, hats & gloves for all ages for our mission partners. Drop off items in the red bins outside of Witherspoon throughout November. 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.
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.
