CARING & SHARING PROGRAM - "LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT" - "HAPPY FEET PROGRAM"

The Lynn Shelter Association and My Brother's Table is in need of warm socks for its visitors during the winter months. We ask that you donate new socks to this program. This is a giant request since approximately 350 people visit the shelter on a daily basis. Please be generous for our less fortunate friends.

We are also beginning our "Coat Drive". Please bring in your gently used coats, boots, hat, mittens & scarves for children thru adult size during the months of October and November. Boxes will be set up for all donations. Thank you for making the winter months warmer for those in need!

CARING & SHARING PROGRAM - "LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT" - "HAPPY THANKSGIVING"

With the coming of the month of November our minds go to that great American holiday, "THANKSGIVING" which is celebrated on Thursday, November 28th. It is a time for us to reflect on the countless blessings that God has abundantly bestowed upon us. It is also a time to reflect on those individuals that are less fortunate than most of us, and as we do this we ask that you make a donation and help us make the difference for them through our Caring & Sharing program now in its 24th year. Hundreds have received assistance through your generosity. Please be generous.

We plan on distributing 40 food baskets to families in need of assistance and 35 elderly shut ins from the Greater Lynn Senior Services.

We ask that you please bring in non-perishable food items such as: canned vegetables, soups, cereals, pasta, rice, canned fruit, tuna fish, peanut butter, jelly, tea, coffee, cookies, crackers, hot chocolate, honey, sauces etc.

Items can be brought to the Church office, Monday thru Friday, 9:00AM to 5:00PM, Saturday morning during Greek School or Sunday morning when we come to Church. There will be large baskets in the foyer outside the community center.

Monetary donations are gratefully accepted to help offset the cost of all perishable food items that will be purchased to fill the many food baskets that will be distributed.

ALL CHILDREN ARE ASKED TO HELP PREPARE THE BASKETS ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26th which will start promptly at 5:00PM.

DRIVERS ARE NEEDED TO DELIVER THE FOOD BASKETS ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27th. Please contact the office for more information.

THANK YOU for your HELP and remember we are counting on YOU to make the CARING & SHARING PROGRAM successful.
