Upcoming & Current Outreach Activities

Thanks for ALL you do, making a difference in our community!

Food of the Month: Canned Fruit, Chunky Soups, and Hygiene products (bar soap, dish soap, laundry soap, toothpaste, toothburshes, shampoo, toilet paper).

Please join us each month as we help to stock the shelves at the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf.  Your donations of food or monetary donations (Funds for Food buckets) help to feed our neighbors in the Greece and Charlotte areas.

Salem Nutritional Center: Tuesday, September18th, 9:00am—2:00pm

Please join us for a morning of serving. Meet/leave Church at 9:00.  At 9:30, lunch prep begins.  Serve 100—150 hungry people at noon. Return to the church at 2:00pm.   We need 10 people there each time. It is a very satisfying ministry. See Deacon Dee for details.

 

 


Ongoing Outreach Activities

FIFTH SUNDAY of the month is Undie Sunday

Please bring your donations of new adults' underwear and place them in the big green basket in the commons area. We will deliver them to the Open Door Mission.
 
2019 Dates: March 31st, June 30th, September 29th, December 29th
 

F.I.S.H. Volunteers Needed

F.I.S.H. urgently needs volunteers willing to pledge one day a month to help the elderly and disabled in the Greece & Charlotte areas with transportation for medical appointments. If  you can help, please call 453-2370.
 

Greece Food Shelf Items Needed

Because food prices have risen and Food Stamp amounts have been cut, all kinds of non-perishable foods are still needed for the Food Shelf, especially tuna, hot & cold cereal, canned pasta, dry pasta, canned meat, canned fruits, peanut butter and jelly. In addition, they can use toilet paper, toothpaste, dish detergent, and shampoo. Further, they need volunteers to deliver non-perishable food to people who live alone and need "emergency food." If you are willing to help, please call Ann Walker, 865-0870.   See Food of the Month selections above.

Current News:

Tis the season! We decked the halls, “mittened” the tree, purchased hoodies & balls, rung bells for the Salvation Army!

 

Mittens, scarves, and gloves, oh, my! Donations of games and hoodies and lots of goodies on and under our Mitten Tree will be shared with Pastor Dee’s Seneca Street church as well as with Open Door Mission and Veterans Outreach Center.

 

This year’s Red Kettle Campaign ringers didn’t need to bundle up; it was a balmy 45º on December 14 when our volunteers stationed themselves at Greece Ridge Center to ring those Salvation Army bells. (Thank you, Gale Huber, for organizing this important project.)

 

Thanks for filling the undies basket; the assortment will be distributed to our six elementary schools as well as to Open Door Mission and Veterans Outreach Center. March 31 is our next collection date.

 

Over the course of the last couple of months, we have received thank-you notes from many of our designated mission organizations:

 

· F.I.S.H.: Thanks for your “faithful support; we appreciate your generosity.”

· GEFood Shelf: We are “grateful for your continued support” and appreciate your contributions to the Thanksgiving basket program.

As another new year takes off, we will continue to bring hope and love to our community!
