This comes from Lisa Routhier at My Friends Place, homeless shelter:
“I am making an appeal to the membership for MUCH needed blankets. We have only one left. We can only use regular twin size blankets. No quilts, comforter throws, or knitted items. We are the year round Strafford County shelter, not to be confused with the seasonal one in Rochester. If you would be able to get this to the Missions team that would be wonderful. It’s getting cold out there. Used items are fine! Thanks so much and God Bless.”
Our Outreach Committee is purchasing $100 worth of blankets for their immediate need, and then asking our congregation, as well, to bring in donations over the next few weeks.
You can leave your donation in the box under the coatrack in Hartford Hall.
