Each month, a regional non-profit organization is chosen to receive food and goods donated by church congregants. Read the announcements and/or look at the sign above the collection basket in the narthex for the non-profit of the month. It includes Laurel Center (Battered Women’s Shelter), Woodstock Women’s Shelter, SPCA, House of Hope (Front Royal), C-CAP (Winchester), C-CAP (Berkeley County WV), the Lord Fairfax Area Food Bank, the Winchester Area Temporary Thermal Shelter, and Pine Ridge Reservation.
In November, we ask for donations for Operation Remember, an organization that works to provide gifts to residents of local Nursing Home establishments in need of such. Needed:
- puzzle books
- art / craft supplies
- wall calendars
- men’s white socks
- socks with non-slip bottoms for males & females, all colors
- $10 gift cards for Wal-Mart, McDonalds or like places
- button-down sweaters
- individual size snacks of any kind, including sugar-free
- Christmas wrap and bags
Please place items in the basket in the Narthex. Thank you!
