Collection Drive for Christ House
Trinity’s Church & Society Committee sponsors monthly collections for local and worldwide ministries. During the month of October, we are collecting items for Christ House, an inpatient medical facility for homeless men in Adams Morgan in DC. Christ House is the only facility of its kind in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area where over 6,000 people experience homelessness every day. We are collecting
New or Gently Used Men’s clothing items (Medium – 2XL):
long sleeve t-shirts
short sleeve t-shirts
Men’s shoes (Sizes 9 – 13):
tennis or other shoes
Please place donations in the bins outside the Sanctuary and in the Fellowship Building.
Collecting Christmas Cards: Naty de las Alas is collecting new or gently used Christmas cards (religious theme preferred) that will be distributed to the homeless. Look for the collection boxes in the Narthex and in the Fellowship Building. Thank you!
Christmas stockings, fleece blankets, soft hats and neck pillows are piling up in the Crafts room, thanks to the recent efforts of volunteers to make comfort items for Fair Oaks Hospital patients. You can be a part of this rewarding ministry by joining one of these upcoming work sessions on Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 in Room 124: Nov. 5, Nov. 19, Dec. 3 and Dec. 17.
Crafts also has an ongoing Loom Hat Project to provide warm hats for Christ House residents and newborn babies at Fair Oaks. This is an easy task that only requires a loom and thick yarn. If you would like to try your hand at making a loomed hat, contact Molly Sprouse at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out the displays in the back of the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Building and at http://bit.ly/tumccrafts.
Also, please mark your calendars for our annual Holiday Food and Crafts Bazaar starting Sun., Nov. 18. This is how we raise the funds to run next year’s crafts ministry, so we count on your support.
