Every second year the wonderful people of the Deacon’s Cupboard collect winter coats in the autumn to distribute among the guests of the food cupboard service. There will be a coat drive this year and the Deacon’s Cupboard is looking for a volunteer to coordinate donations from EMUC. Ideally the person would be someone not already committed to volunteering at the cupboard and able to help organize and plan with volunteers from the other involved churches. This would include attending occasional meetings and overseeing the collections from our church family until the coats are delivered in November.
If you are looking an opportunity to share your time and talents with a deserving program, please speak to Rev Kathi before the deadline of May 28.
