HOMELESS AT HEART

www.homelessatheart.org

The Missions Committee is participating in Homeless at Heart (a Valentine Shoe Box program for the homeless) again this year and there are ways for the ENTIRE church family to get involved! 

Join us on January 24th, Wednesday night at 6:45, where we will be putting together the boxes, decorating and writing Valentines.  On Sunday,January 28th all 3 services will hold a "Blessing of the Boxes" before we take them to be delivered.

 

HOW CAN I HELP?          

1)               DONATE Hand-written Valentine notes to the recipients (each box will have a personal Valentine)- this is what we need the most!

2)               DONATE items for the boxes (target price $5/box): Items include -

BOTTLED WATER

SOCKS

NON-PERISHABLE SNACKS & BREAKFAST FOOD

CHAPSTICK

GLOVES

TOILETRIES

VALENTINE CANDIES (LIKE "SWEETHEARTS")

GENTLY USED PAPERBACK BOOKS

 

 3)  DONATE empty shoe boxes (that have already been wrapped - tops separately; this was the most time consuming item last year) and/or shoe box sized plastic "bins" to the church - NOW through January 17th.  We will also be accepting EXTRA-LARGE Plastic Ziploc bags.

4)        Make it a family project and put together some completed boxes!

Help us continue the St. Andrew tradition of being a blessing to others!!!!!!!!
