The August outreach is a gift card drive. Many of you know that Madison police officers sit in our parking lot to do paperwork and other police business. The church would like to occasionally give the officers a little thank you gift card. If you have a card that you aren’t using, or would like to purchase one, please leave it in the box on the table in the narthex.
We are resuming our collection for Backpack Snacks. Backpack Snacks are for Madison City students who need food assistance on the weekends. We have been asked to provide fruit cups and macaroni and cheese cups. Please be aware of peanut allergies.
We are collecting soups, canned fruit and veggies, pasta, toiletries, paper products and more. The food pantry is in need of toiletries such as deodorant, shampoo, shaving cream, razors, feminine hygiene products, toothbrushes and toothpaste. There is a basket in the narthex for donations.
We continue to collect pop can tabs for St. Jude’s Hospital. The collection boxes are in the Narthex and Fellowship Hall.
