For the third year, North Church is sponsoring a Veterans Mission Project from Memorial Day through Independence Day. The project will be in support of Willow Lodge on 9A, a 20-bed Community Living Center that focuses on hospice/palliative care and rehabilitation at the VA Hospital.
The recreational therapist said that she would like to have the ability to purchase treats spontaneously for the veterans, such as Tim Horton’s coffee and donuts or pizza, as the need arises. We will be collecting monetary donations with which we will purchase gift cards for these items from Wegmans, Bocce Pizza and Tim Horton’s to brighten the day for our service men and women in Willow Lodge. There will be a Mission Committee representative with a veteran in the narthex after services on six Sundays to receive donations. Just look for the red, white, and blue. (If you write a check to North Church, please write “Veterans Project” on the memo line.)
