A suggestion arising from the Sunday School curriculum this fall as part of the “Be Good Caretakers of God’s Creation” focus was to make a collection of new, warm socks and small items that could be useful to the homeless of our community. The children came up with suggestions for small hygiene items like soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, comb, hairbrush, lip balm, small shampoo and/or hand sanitizer; as well as individual snack items, water bottles or juice packs. We will be collecting the items to be stuffed into the socks for the children to put together and donate at our White Gift Service. There will be a collection in the Sunday school area if any of the congregation would like to contribute items starting at the beginning of November. Feel free to add ideas to the children’s list!
