ON-GOING EVENTS & NEWS
Winter Clothing Collection 2017-18
It’s that time again to collect new or gently used items for our neighbors who need warm clothing. The box for collection will be available in the Narthex beginning Sunday, Sept. 3, until Sunday, Oct. 8. The distribution will be Saturday, Oct. 14, at three sites in the area. Items are needed for infant, child and adult sizes: coats, snow pants, hats, gloves and mittens, scarves, boots, shoes, warm socks, sweatpants, sweatshirts, jeans, and Halloween costumes for kids. See what you can share!
As kids go back to school again this month, it is time to begin planning for Operation Backpack. We will be serving both Horn and Borlaug elementary schools as we did last year. At this time, we are planning to begin mid-September. This gives the school staff time to identify those children in need, then contact the parents and complete the required paper work to participate. As we did last year, CTK will supply carrots, bananas and apples or clementines every other week, and HACAP will provide the shelf stable food. Requests for both donations as well as filling the bags will be emailed through Sign Up Genius.
