Outreach Committee Newsletter November

Outreach November, 2017

Matthew 25:35-40New King James Version (NKJV)

“For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;  I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.”

There was no Outreach meeting in October.

We encourage you to support the Hearts and Lives Annual Coat drive by cleaning out your closets of any warm clothing that you are not using.  We need coats, boots, gloves, hats for all ages and sizes.  Warm sweat pants, sweaters, and sweat shirts are also appreciated.  We will accept donations through November 12th.

Thank you for participating in our annual food drive to benefit Mountain Helping Hands.  Mountain Helping Hands provides Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for needy residents of Green Valley Lake, Arrowbear, and Running Springs.  If you have not yet had time to contribute, you still can.  We will extend the drive through November 12th.  If you choose to donate money, please make your checks out to St Richard’s and write Fall Food Drive in the notation section of your check.

In order to feed hungry families in the Running Springs area a Thanksgiving meal, Mountain Helping Hands needs:

non-perishable food items such as:

canned vegetables                                                  aluminum roasting pans
