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

Food of the Month: Canned Fruit and Chunky Soups.

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.

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.
 
2018 Dates: December 30th
 

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:

“Deck the halls with boughs of holly!” While we think of this song as “lauding the onset of the Christmas holiday,” it was originally sung to “celebrate the impending new year.” We’ve covered both!

 

From October 28--November 18, we sponsored the Dove Campaign

to benefit a variety of programs at the Open Door Mission. On November 25, Chris Scribani, Director of Development at the Open Door Mission, was present at both services to receive approximately $180 in donations!

 

On November 11, we honored our Veterans with a special service and the gift of a small lapel pin, saluting their service.

 

As always, our November 18 Bucket Brigade brought a wealth of frozen turkeys, canned and boxed goods to fill up boxes for 10 families. Special thanks to David at the Latta Road UPS Store for selling us those boxes for only $1.00 each!

 

Let’s load up our Mitten Tree with scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens—once again benefitting the Seneca Street UMC in Buffalo and Open Door Mission.

 

Our stalwart Red Kettle crew, organized by Gale Huber, will brave the weather on December 14 to ring in money for the Salvation Army. In addition, we have several more opportunities to volunteer for Salvation Army projects throughout the month. (Check the flyers on the table in the commons).

 

Finally, December 30 is Undie Sunday, so let’s fill up our big green basket with undies and socks for our 6 elementary schools as well as adult undies for the Open Door Mission and Veterans Outreach Center.

 

Thank you: these two small words don’t seem enough to show appreciation for the huge difference this church makes in our community.

 

Many Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!
