SUMMER MISSION PROJECT: We have tables available in the narthex and chapel to receive donations of SOCKS, UNDERWEAR, AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES for the children in need at Harry Abate Elementary School in Niagara Falls, one of our inner city grade schools. We have checked with their administrators, and yes, they are able to accept our donations. They continue to have a great need for these items, even with distance learning. So no matter what the school situation looks like in September, they anticipate that there will be numerous requests for help. Please remember this mission as you are out shopping, and of course, shop safely (masks, distancing, and wash your hands).
SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES for July & August are designated to support our local food pantries. As you’ve seen in the news, food pantries across the country have experienced tremendous increases in requests for help since the onset of the pandemic, and our local pantries are no exception. Your donations in the Special Mission envelopes from your packets, or the Special Mission option online, will be split evenly between Community Mission, Salvation Army, Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission, and Heart, Love, & Soul. Thank you for your generosity in helping our neighbors.
