Church & Society | Crafts for a Cause
Church & Society
During the months of June and July, we will collect for Share. Share is a food pantry and family assistance program established in 1969 by several faith communities. Today, Share serves hundreds of local needy families over the course of a year and are supported by a network of 24 faith communities, several schools and local businesses, and tons of individuals! Share is completely volunteer run so every dollar and every donation goes directly to the clients! Please visit http://www.shareofmclean.org for more information. Please place all donations in the 2 bins located in each Narthex entryway or in the bin in Fellowship Lobby.
These are the critical need items:
- Rice (2 pound bags)
- Cooking oil
- Granola bars
- 100% juice in bottles or juice boxes
- Baby wipes
- Feminine products
- Gently used sheet sets
- Children and adult summer clothing
Crafts for a Cause
Thanks to all the volunteers who showed up for Trinity’s Good Works Day in April, Crafts for a Cause has a mountain of comfort pillows, sock dolls, surgery dolls and bears to send to Fair Oaks Hospital to comfort patients of all ages. We also have about 50 cotton dresses to send to needy girls in Uganda. Thanks to everyone who participated!
In case you’re wondering, the comfort items we send to Fair Oaks every month include neck pillows and lap blankets for patients receiving chemotherapy, arm pillows for breast cancer patients, surgery dolls for children having procedures, knit caps for newborn babies and sock dolls for siblings.
During June, Crafts will meet on alternating Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on June 6 and June 20. The Wednesday morning sessions have been suspended until the fall. Everyone is welcome to come help make the comfort items we churn out every month; no skills required, just willing hands. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
