CITYREACH IS HAPPENING AGAIN!
City Reach is not primarily about the clothes and other items we bring (the "stuff"), but more about the interaction between the youth and the unhoused leaders. But the "stuff" is still vitally important to folks who need winter coats, heavy clothes and new socks. The unhoused community is already asking about it. Due to COVID City Reach with the youth is not going to happen,
However, on December 11th and 12th there is going to be a collaboration between MANNA (Many Angels Needed Now and Always) and Common Cathedral to have a different version of City Reach. They are asking churches to collect the items listed below which will be sorted by the unhoused leaders, and then given to the unhoused community.
- Blankets/sleeping bags
We are asking that all clothing items be men’s since we see 80% men and even the women prefer men’s clothing due to its functional nature. Clothes should be clean and free of rips, tears and stains. They should be in a condition that you would wear.
Dunkin Donuts gift cards ("Dignity Cards") 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. You can either drop off gift cards or make a donation for the gift cards to be purchased.
The office at the 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 working for you, please reach out to Mark Kingston (MKingston@easterninsurance.com, 781-264-7366) or Chuck Frary (firstname.lastname@example.org), so that they can arrange a time for you. Donations can also be dropped off at the Norwell Council on Aging, but please call first to be sure someone is available to take in your donation. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE BAGS OF DONATED ITEMS OR GIFT CARDS/CHECKS OUTSIDE EITHER LOCATION!
All donations should be dropped off no later than Sunday, December 6th
Thank you all for working together to continue this important outreach mission!
