2021 Lenten Conference Collection Challenge
Last year we collected toilet paper, this year we are collecting menstrual hygiene products. Because, like toilet paper it is often asked for but never donated. The Period Project shares, “Tampons and sanitary pads are not a luxury. Without proper supplies women miss work, girls miss school, and lives of homeless women become harder and less dignified. Access to menstrual products is both a health and an economic issue.” This will once again be a friendly competition with weekly updates to participating congregations Donations will go to local pantries and shelters.
As the year comes to a close don't forget to include St. Paul's in your charitable giving, any donations up to $300 are a tax deduction that do not require itemization for the year 2020.
MEMORIAL DONATIONS - All donations go into the Memorial Fund unless otherwise indicated.
FRIENDS OF THE NIGHT PEOPLE - Friends of the Night People and St Paul's are reaching out to volunteers for the 4th Monday 4:30pm to 7:30pm .Without saying, the need is great. Without saying, the need is greater and more challenging.
PLEASE text Lee Clukey at 716 631-9855 if there is any chance you may want to volunteer.
MORE NEWS FROM FRIENDS OF THE NIGHT PEOPLE: Faith White has been in contact as well with The staff at Friends. They have begun serving meals on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 5-7 pm. The numbers of meals served and needs of those they help continues to grow. Last year from March through September they served 18,788 meals. This year, that number has increased dramatically for the same time period to 80,064. The need is greater than ever, especially as they prepare for the upcoming holiday season and winter.
Faith White noted that there is a great need for clothing for men, women and children, especially coats, boots, gloves and hats but also blankets and sleeping bags. Those items/donations can be dropped at church or call Faith at 688-4478 if you need her to pick up your donations (leave a message if necessary).
