The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree began as a holiday season collection of hats, gloves, and other cold weather essentials.  One year, a young member of the congregation suggested leaving it up all year as a way to collect different types of items for a variety of causes.  The Missions Committee felt this was a wonderful idea; a great way to help local causes all year long.  Since then the tree has been used year round and served as a way to collect everything from canned goods to school supplies.

October Collection:

 

The Giving Tree for the month of October will be collecting toilet paper, Kleenex (boxes or type that goes in a purse, backpack or pocket), chapstick, hand lotion, shampoo, conditioner, dish soap, soap, hand sanitizer, etc; (basically any items that cannot be purchased with EBT cards are welcome & appreciated).


These items will be made available to our guests at Alex’s Kitchen on Monday and the Community Dinner on Tuesday. Many of
these items can be purchased at the dollar stores but can mean so much to someone who just doesn’t have any extra money in a month.


Please leave all donations under our giving tree.
Thank you from the Missions Committee
