RERUN SHOES Thanks to Deborah Miller, Job Coordinator of the Options Transitions Program with Delaware County Intermediate Unit. Before Christmas she and her assistant brought six students to the church to match and box shoes. We have four boxes ready to be shipped. Our donation will result in the purchase of two mosquito nets for the No More Malaria Program. This is an ongoing outreach program.
COMMUNITY DONORS TO THE FOOD BANK Starbucks (Media), Panera (Newtown Square and Lawrence Park), Wawa (Drexel Hill), Wolff’s Orchard (Media), Trader Joe’s, (Media). We are grateful for the support of these businesses.
GLASSES FOR THE MASSES Last month, 46 pair of glasses were donated and sent on their way. The basket in the Narthex is again being filled with unwanted prescription eyeglasses. We experienced an unexpected joy two weeks ago when we were able to give a suitable pair to one of our Food Bank guests. He is still expressing his gratitude.
