Who doesn’t love babies? And who doesn’t want to help make sure they are clean and dry?
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). (If you are part of the beta-test rollout of REALM, you can set up your online gift there as well.)
The Deacons thank you!
