We are starting to collect socks for the homeless, all ages this summer. If you see them on sale, please share with members. Cheryl is coordinating a way for you to purchase online or drop off to her. Watch for updates.

We learned that Kroger has a 90% off sale on hats and gloves. If you are shopping in Kroger and would like to purchase, we will find a non-profit later in the year to donate to.

We are continuing to collect new or gently used children books for an ongoing donation to Franklin County Job & Family Services. The books are given to children of families that are in great need.

If you have old or gently-used suitcases (larger ones with wheels) or backpacks, foster children need them when they arrive or leave their new home.

Please contact Cheryl at 614-774-8879 for pick-up or drop-off arrangements.
We want to celebrate big birthdays, work announcements, honors, etc. Please share the details, so we can share this information and celebrate with you.

Please keep our members and those on the prayer list in your thoughts and prayers. Please also pray for Dell Koch and the family of member Aggie McKinnon, Annie Graves, Ryan Graves, Susan Broon, Paul Tisdale, Sr. Mary Pat Gallagher, Joan Shanahan, Mary Sue Dempsey, Margie Butz, Katie Thompson and Laura Kruse.
