A big thank you to “Sunday Morning Regulars” John, Linda, Peter, Anne, Pat, Wendy, Marilyn, Nancy and Patty for the time donated to sorting, checking and labeling the children’s books we will be delivering to Darby Free Library on Thursday 2/24.

Interesting note… Darby Free Library is the oldest continuous use Library in the country.

The books are being delivered to Park Lane Elementary (part of Darby Mission) for kids to have and use at home.

Great job all!

Fondly, Cassie

March 16th Food Giveaway Drive

Once again this month we are collecting pasta sauce – any brand or variety – for the Darby Food Giveaway. You can leave your donations in the back of the church, or in the Can-estoga wagon by the tent on Sundays – even though it’s jars and not cans! Deadline: Tuesday, March 15 for a timely delivery to the mission!

PROJECT SHARE

Our Current Drives:

  • Apostle’s Cup Coffee – after purchasing some for yourself you can donate an extra bag to Project Share. $4 of every purchase goes directly to the Darby Mission to fund their various projects. You can help two of our Outreach partners with one purchase!
  • Socks – socks, boots and gently used winter coats
  • Soup – cans of hearty/chunky soups for the lunch program.
  • Corks – we are collecting these for craft projects at Project Share and the Darby summer camps to build bird houses
  • Girl Scout Cookies – sure it’s hard to part with them, but if you’re willing, we’ll take your donated cookies to Project Share to add to the other lunch goodies we’re supplying. Just two weeks left to purchase Girl Scout Cookies for 2022. Don’t miss out! See announcement below for Emma Gallagher’s cookie link!

Thank you for your understanding and care for the young children in our midst.
