April Collection Drive
Thanks to everyone who provided donations of clothing for men for Christ House and Carpenter’s Shelter. Christ House, located in D.C., provides medical and hospice care for the homeless. Carpenter’s Shelter, located in Alexandria, is an 80-bed facility that provides food and shelter for homeless men, women and children, along with child care and employment assistance. Both organizations really appreciated your donations.
May Collection Drive
During the month of May, we’re collecting cans of baby formula (with and without iron), jars of baby food (vegetables, fruit and meat), boxes of baby cereal and disposable diapers (any size) to help the families served by Fairfax Area Christian Emergency & Transitional Services. FACETS was created to respond to the many needs of homeless and low-income people living in Fairfax County. Please leave your donations in the collection closet located in the Fellowship Building.
Pease be a part of this wonderful ministry. On the second Sunday of each month we make sandwiches to feed the hungry in Washington, DC. You can help by buying the bread, by delivering the sandwiches or being a kitchen helper. You’ll find the sign-up sheet in the Fellowship Building.
Mother’s Day Gifts for Martha’s Table
Thanks to everyone who contributed travel-size toiletries for Martha’s Table. We were able to assemble and donate 115 organza bags filled with toiletries for Martha’s Table to present as Mother’s Day gifts.
