Sock Drive for the Homeless

One of the most helpful gifts for the homeless in the winter is clean, dry socks. Please bring in socks Sunday, January 17 (between 8 and 10 a.m. to Fellowship Hall) or during the week (Mon-Thurs. 8-4; Fri. 8-2). Hopefully, even though we can't do this with in-person worship, we can get more socks than ever! Or if it more convenient, socks can also be dropped off at the Posey's home at 340 Longfellow Avenue or the Humes' home at 385 Longfellow Avenue in Worthington.

A Big Thank you

Just a “warm” thank you for all the generous donations of hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and even socks for the Paton McCormick Mitten Tree project in December. The total number of individual items donated this year was over 200 and far exceeded any year since I started heading up this project in 2014. In addition, a total of $55 was donated. I contacted the Y-Family Center to see if they had a particular need before I went shopping. They said they needed hats and gloves for children under 5 years old. After shopping, the items were sorted and delivered to the Y-Family Center. This is a very generous congregation indeed. Praise be to God!
