God's Work, Our Hands September projects

We have 3 projects planned for September

Homeless Car Packs

We are collecting the following items for our car pack kits: cracker pack, cookie pack, 6oz bottle water, breath mint rolls, energy bars, fruit bars, travel toothbrushes/toothpaste. Donations can be placed on the table in the hallway.

Sleeping mats for the homeless

Have you ever wondered how you could help the hungry and homeless in our area? You could help them by making sleeping mats for them from plastic bags. These mats help keep them from sleeping on the wet/damp/cold ground and they deter bugs. This also helps our environment by recycling the plastic bags that are so hard to destroy. If you would like to learn how to make these sleeping mats, please join us on September 8th after the late service.

Backpacks, White Card Stock, One Subject Spiral notebook, Highlighters, Composition Notebooks, Tissues, 24 Count Crayola Crayons, Lysol Wipes, Large Pink Erasers, Blunt tip Safety Scissors, Glue Sticks, Wide-ruled loose leaf paper, Plastic Two-Pocket Folders
