Compassion and Sharing During the Thanksgiving Season
We often feel a call on our hearts in this season, to share our family's abundance and make life good for others. We have opportunities to do just that! First, we will be receiving donations via cash, check, or e-giving for Desert Mission Food Bank. Your financial support of the food bank will make Thanksgiving meals possible for many families in the Valley.
Second (a new opportunity for 2021), Ktizo UCC has asked for our help in supporting their homeless outreach with these specific donation items:
To support their weekly feeding program:
- Peanut butter
- Jelly other than grape
- Individually wrapped single servings of canned fruit
- Individual containers of applesauce
- White bread
To stock their clothing closet:
- men's pants 34 to 36 waist (new or gently used and freshly washed)
- new underwear
- hygiene products such as body wash, shampoo, lotion, travel size toothpaste
So, we have two opportunities (Desert Mission and Ktizo) and two ways to give (money and in-kind) that are connected by our shared values of compassion, service, and generosity. Please bring your donations to Shadow Rock on or before November 21.
