Chiavetta’s BBQ for Missions
Wednesday, September 27
Save the date! The proceeds from this Chiavetta’s BBQ fundraiser will be specially designated for Missions!
Friends of Night People
We cook and serve dinner at Friends of Night People once a month. We need at least six people to go to Friends (FONP) on Hudson St. in Buffalo to serve the meal on Tuesday, July 25. Volunteers need to arrive between 4:30 and 5 and are finished about 7 p.m. Young people 14 ½ and older are welcome without a supervising adult; younger volunteers need to be accompanied by an adult. New volunteers are always welcome and needed at this important ministry. Please contact Ann Eisenlord at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-632-7487 to learn more.
Gently-used clothing: FONP is now accepting the following donations for men and women: jeans and sweatpants jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts, sneakers, and boots. If you have any of these items that are in near-new condition (no stains, rips, etc.), please bring them to the church.
We gather to make simple dresses (for girls), shorts (for boys), and dolls, all of which are sent to children in need. New volunteers (of ANY skill level–even complete beginners!) are always welcome; we meet the 4th Monday of each month from 4-8pm. Learn more about Dress-A-Girl. There are no meetings in July and August.
Harvest House Needs Clothes
An Opportunity for Families with Children Infants to Size 14
Harvest House Baby and Children’s Ministry needs clean clothing is for newborn to size 14. Please put items in the box in north wing. Thanks for helping children in need. This gives hope to those parents trying to provide for their children.
Food Bank Donations
Please remember to contribute to the Food Bank collection box in the narthex. The bulk of these donations go to University Presbyterian Food Pantry, an agency of The Food Bank of Western New York. From the donations, we are also able to provide staples to those who stop at the church office looking for help. The need is great and does not end when a specific food drive ends. If we could all try to bring just one item when we come to church, it would make a significant difference in the lives of those in need.
Directory of Donation Sites
A directory has been prepared to help you with the daunting task of de-cluttering. We all have more stuff than we need, but if you throw it away, it will sit in landfill for years. There are many agencies that welcome your unwanted, used items. They are detailed in this directory with contact information and lists of acceptable donations. Reusing and recycling may be a bit more work than tossing things, but it will benefit others in our community and be better for the environment. Please have a look at the document posted here: Directory of Donation Sites. You can pick up a print copy of the directory from the Mission Kiosk in Westminster Hall.
