We are also organizing a drive to focus on items to help with the cold and lack of power in Ukraine for children and elderly. We are specifically requesting
1) Children’s pajamas and/or thermal underwear of any size. Feel free to include new, warm socks. Please put them in a large Ziplock bag. If you have a child who would like to draw a card to include that is welcome, but not required.
2) Adult sized thermal underwear
3) Coats, sweaters, or fleece of any size, child or adult (These should be in good condition, but do not need to be new)
4) Hand warmers
These donations can be dropped off at the church Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Fridays from 8:00 a.m. until noon or Sundays if you are attending worship or a program. The church office will be closed from December 26th through Janaury 2nd. We will be collecting items until January 10th. Please place items in the box marked Ukraine Pajama Drive in the Gathering Space.
If you would like to make a donation to help cover the cost of shipping items to Ukraine, you can donate by visiting the USA with Ukraine website https://usawithukraine.org/ and clicking on the donate button on the top right hand side of their webpage.
All donations of pajamas and other warm clothes must be dropped off at the church by January 10th so that our donations can be included in their next shipment that will go to Ukraine in late January.
We hope you will select one of the options listed above to help spread some love to the people of Ukraine this winter.
