MEDICAL SUPPLIES UPDATE
Thanks to Al Skrocki and a team of helpers-
and despite the obstacle of a closed free bridge and
and an expensive toll bridge that was open-
a large assortment of medical supplies was picked
up from St. Thomas last week.

John and Linda Landis and Jeff Kline
helped make sure that a bed, many walkers,
shower seats and smaller items were collected
to help those in need.

Many, many thanks to those who donated and participated.

The collection continues!

If you have questions about items needed or want to drop off at the church, call 734-675-0005.
