Last year we donated 325 items to local agencies. Your help is needed to make this project a success again this year!!

PAPYRUS CAMP—this is the LAST WEEK to donate toward sending a child to Papyrus Camp at Camp Pioneer. We are hoping to raise the $450 needed to send one child to this special camp for inner city and foster children from Western New York who come from abusive or neglectful family situations. Please consider helping a special child by placing a donation in your special mission envelope (or a plain envelope marked “Papyrus Camp”). For some of the children at this camp it may be the only opportunity they have to learn of the love of Jesus.
