This listing contains information about our ongoing Mission efforts. For date specific mission activities, please view the monthly calendar.
ICCAP Food Collection
Each month Calvary donates food to the Indiana County Community Action Program (ICCAP) Food Bank.
In August, we are collecting food items for healthy breakfasts and packed school lunches: hot drink mixes, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, drink boxes and pouches, cereals (hot and cold), and fruit and pudding cups, packaged snack crackers, cookies, and granola bars. Use your imagination!
Little Dresses for Africa
In support of Mission Rwanda, Little Dress kits have been assembled and are ready for pick-up. Be sure to look through the trims and embellishments available for the dresses and help yourself. The trims may be applied as you wish, utilizing your artistic talents. In addition, we have twenty-five pre-cut kits for little shorts in sizes 4, 6, and 8, complete with elastic for the waistband.
Finished dresses are due back to the church by September 1. We will have well over 120 dresses plus some shorts for boys. All garments will be on display September 8 in honor of Rwanda Partnership Sunday. We will ship the dresses to Michigan later that week and from there, they will go to Rwanda.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA)
Our PDA Clean-up Buckets and Hygiene Kits will be delivered to the New Windsor, Maryland, warehouse in readiness for immediate emergency needs identified by PDA. In all, we assembled eleven Clean-up Buckets and sixty- three Hygiene kits. Many thanks for a summer of big-heartedness.
