Collecting food at Kensington Safeway, washing cars to raise money for Nicaragua and making cards for servicemen and women are just some of the activities you and your family can participate in during St. Paul’s 3rd Annual Great Day of Service. Activities are available for all ages and abilities. After attending a spirited 9:00 AM service on May 4, the Justice and Compassion Ministry Team encourages church members and anyone interested in community service to participate in one of nine different activities from 10:00 AM -1:00 PM. Click Here to sign up or in the church office.
One of the Great Day of Service projects will be to collect, sort and donate items for newly-arrived refugees. Our primary focus this year will be
necessities for newborns and, secondly, infants and toddlers up to 4 years old. Items suggested include: disposable or cloth diapers; wipes; baby wash; flannels; soft towels; newborn hats; baby blankets; gowns or one-piece sleepers; (or pajamas for older ones); swaddlers; small soft toys (no button eyes); diaper bags. Also much needed are car seats for newborns—very gently used and in perfect working order; alternatively, cash or check donations towards the purchase of a new car seat would be gratefully received. Checks may be made out to St. Paul’s UMC, with a notation “GDOS Refugees.” Cash donations may be left at the office. Thank you for your help!
