Through out the month of October "The Coalition" has asked our church if we could help with collecting boys and girls children's underwear of all sizes. This is just one of many items that families in crisis have need of. We will have boxes at the exits of the church to collect these items in. ( We still provide boxes of mashed potatoes each month)
Throughout October we will also be collecting hard candy for WMU's "Red Box" Prison ministry. With the Red Box prison ministry each association in NC is asked to collect different items to fill a red box that will be given to the inmates at the NC correctional institute for women and the Raleigh correctional center for women. Each piece of hard candy needs to be individually wrapped. Each inmate will receive a full bag of candy. We will collect these by Oct. 31st.
