SMOC Food and Clothing Drives

NOTE: For the month of January, we are running a special SMOC WARM COAT DRIVE to support the residents at the Worcester shelter. Please consider making a special effort to collect and bring to church any gently used or new coats or warm outer clothing. There is a box in the Sanctuary. We will deliver the clothing on Friday January 26th .

As usual, SMOC food and clothing donations may now be dropped off in the box in the Sanctuary every Sunday. Bologna can be stored in the upstairs refrigerator in the parlor.
