CITY REACH - PART TWO!
I received an email from Common Cathedral thanking us for all the donations we brought into Boston in early December. Along with the other churches that brought donations there was enough to provide for more than 225 unhoused brothers and sisters who desperately needed the items they received to sustain them through the cold winter months.
It was so successful that they are having another "Mini City Reach" on January 23rd. They are specifically in need of:
- New men’s underwear (any size and boxers are preferred)
- Large bags, backpacks and suitcases with wheels.
Dunkin Donuts gift cards ("Dignity Cards") are also welcome and will also be collected to be distributed as a meal, a warm place to eat, and use of the facilities are so important to the unhoused community.
The office at the CHUMC Fellowship center is open every Tuesday from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. If you are available on Tuesday, please stop by Fellowship Center and drop your donations off in the church office. If Tuesday is not good for you, please reach out to Mark Kingston at 781-264-7366 or MKingston@easterninsurance.com, or Chuck Frary at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that they can arrange a time for you. All donations should be dropped off no later than Sunday, January 17th.
Donations can also be dropped off at the Norwell Council on Aging, January 13-15 ONLY, but please call first (781-659-7878) to be sure someone is available to take in your donation.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE BAGS OF DONATED ITEMS OR GIFT CARDS OUTSIDE EITHER LOCATION!
This is another opportunity for us to work together to support our most vulnerable sisters and brothers!
