RERUN SHOES: IMAGINE NO MALERA

We can help put an end to malaria, a deadly disease that kills thousands of children in Africa each year. Bring in unwanted shoes. The shoes will be boxed and shipped to an organization in Massachusetts. For each 100 pounds of shoes we send, a bed net will purchased from UMCOR and donated to the children in Africa. Men’s, women’s and children’s shoes are accepted. Please no high heels, boots or sandals. The shoes are cleaned and sent to Africa for resale. If you are interested in helping to box the shoes and take them to the post office, please see Bonnie Scarborough or e-mail her at bsunny2@verizon.net.

OUTREACH UPDATE

 

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.
