Helping Others

Purse Project

It's that time of year again! Spring cleaning and soon you ladies will be "changing" your purses. If you have a purse that you are just not using any more, consider donating it to be given to someone less fortunate. We will also be collecting "things" to put in the purses - bar soap, body wash, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste, body lotion, chap stick, brushes, combs, little tissue packs, socks, shampoo, breakfast bars, granola bars, candy, gum - just about anything that you'd have in your purse (basics). A small denomination ($5) gift card to Tim Horton's would be an extra special addition. Collection will end Sunday, May 27. Please leave in collection bin in Mission Central.


Seeds for Souls

We are collecting packages of ORGANIC fruit and vegetable seeds for Red Bird Mission in the Appalachia region. They currently have 55 families who participate in the program. Families and the elderly are helped out with guidance, seeds, and tools to create a garden to help feed their family and to also sell their produce at a local farmers market. This area is not close to supermarkets with fresh produce as we are used to. Remember - ORGANIC SEEDS ONLY! Check the packages and make sure they are organic seeds. These seeds are available locally at Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s. The seeds at Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and Family Dollar are NOT organic and cannot be used by this project. There is a bin in mission alley to drop them into. We will be collecting them until Sunday, May 13.


Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done. -Proverbs 19:17
