This year we will be supporting the local Yates County Food for the Needy in our campaign to  provide children with the basics.  It will be back to school time soon and our kids need new undies, socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste. A special need has been mentioned for boys boxers and socks for both boys and girls.  There is a box at the front of the sanctuary for your donations. We hope you will prayerfully consider this need and pick up an item or two the next time you shop.





Church World Service Hygiene & School Kits


There will be a collection box at the church during the month of August for anyone who would like to contribute items (listed below) for making up some of these kits. Competed kits will be presented to Amy Manning, our guest speaker for Women’s Sunday on September 19th. I will personally sew as many of the school bags as we can fill with supplies. Watch for sales especially on the school supplies. If you can’t shop, you may wish to contribute money that we will use to purchase any items needed to complete a kit and to cover postage for delivering these items to the people in need.

Thanking you in advance for any contribution to the project,

Diane DeLooza ABW President
