Do you belong to BJ’s and get the big coupon book every few weeks? Do you get diaper coupons when you don’t have kids, or when your youngest child is long out of diapers? Please pull those diaper coupons (any brand) out of the book and turn them in to the office (in any way– even the offering plate!). Pat Prauda buys the diapers for our diaper ministry, and always appreciates a way to save a bit of money. 

Please also consider a one-time, or recurring, donation to our diaper ministry.

Our Food Pantry distributes diapers to our pantry clients once a month, offering 3-4 days worth of diapers, thus relieving their food budgets a little bit, since diapers and other hygiene supplies are not purchasable with food stamps. This ministry costs us $300 per month and we have reached the point in the year when donations to cover this ministry fall short of our expenses… so help would be wonderful!  In the near future we hope to be able to offer other hygiene products for adults as well.

Can you help out with a one-time, or even better, monthly donation? (You can be a “sustaining member,” just like for your favorite public radio or TV station!) Send or deposit in the offering plate a check labeled “Diapers,” or contribute online (where it’s easy to make it recurring). 

The Deacons thank you!
