The migrant camp visit is coming up on Sunday, August 8th. Please join us to share fellowship with the people at the camp, and bring them supplies that they can use while they are here as well as when they move to the next stop. We are working closely with La Conexion to organize the event. Beatriz Maya tells us that they are working to vaccinate as many people as possible at the camp – so masks will not be required for attendees.
We are looking for several different kinds of donations to bring to the camp, including:
- Work clothes – jeans, long sleeved shirts, work shoes, all for men and women in various sizes. These can be directed to the Deacon’s Shop.
- Children’s clothes and shoes from baby to teen, including diapers. These can also be directed to the Deacon’s Shop.
- Hygiene items – full size tooth paste, tooth brushes, soap, and deodorant. We want to give each family unit a similar bag, so please use this as a guide to any donations. We will have a box in the office and at Sunday service for these donations.
There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex and in the church lobby if you are able to join us. We’ll meet at the church about 4:15 p.m. to get instructions, load supplies, and caravan to the camps. We will be bringing pizza and other food with us to share. If you have a truck and are willing to help us carry supplies and donated items to the camp, please note that. Thank you for supporting this mission!
