Upcoming & Current Outreach Activities

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

Food of the Month: Canned Fruit and Chunky Soup

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, September 19th, 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 children's underwear and place them in the big green basket in the commons area. We will deliver them to six area elementary schools.
 
2017 Dates: July 30th, October 29th, & December 31st.
 

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.

Our local elementary school children will be well-supplied and very thankful for the dozens of items filling the big, pink collection boxes.  Backpacks, binders, folders, spirals, pencils, glue sticks galore were sorted and packed by the Outreach committee and will be delivered—along with the undies collected in July—to West Ridge, Holmes Road, Autumn Lane, Longridge, English Village, and Brookside.

Special thanks to Chante Snelling and her workplace, Zwicker & Associates, for providing 12 new backpacks, already filled with supplies!

 

We continue to contribute monthly to the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf; check out the Food of the Month notice in the weekly bulletin for the latest requests.

 

 

 

Speaking of food, it’s almost time to get our   GOBBLE on!  Once again, we have pledged to  supply 10 Thanksgiving “baskets” for the annual Food Shelf project. November 19 will be “Bucket Brigade” Sunday when we haul in our frozen turkeys & lots of canned or packaged goods to supply Thanksgiving meal “fixins” to needy families. Stay tuned for the exciting details!

 

Your generosity knows no bounds.  Thank you for the multitude of ways you support our projects and contribute to our community!
