June Mission Projects
Monday, June 3
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Monday, repeating until Monday June 24, 2019
ICCAP Food Collection
Each month Calvary donates food to the Indiana County Community Action Program (ICCAP) Food Bank. This month we are collecting canned vegetables, all sizes and types, including all varieties of beans both canned and dry, pasta mixes, rice, and rice mixes.
You may drop your donations in the bins next to the Mission table in the Chalice room anytime the building is open.
For the most recent report on our collections to date, please click here.
It is always wonderful to hear from Kay Day, Presbyterian Mission co-worker in Rwanda since 2013. Please click here for Kay’s June 2019 prayer letter.
Little Dresses for Africa
In support of Mission Rwanda, seventy-five 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. The completed dresses and shorts are due back by August 25. We will keep the kit box full, as long as anyone is interested. Happy sewing!
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA)
In addition to monetary donations, Calvary provides for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, we are undertaking two projects to donate hygiene kits and clean-up buckets for their efforts.
We have completed our collection for the PDA Hygiene Kits. Now we can move on to the Clean-up Buckets. The sign-up chart for specific items is posted on the center column bulletin board in the Chalice Room. Please sign a block or two on the chart for needed clean-up products and turn them in by the end of July. Use the green bin to the left of the Mission Table.
Back to School Bash
The Indiana County Back to School Bash will be held on Saturday, August 17. If you would like to follow the news and updates on this community project, you can follow along on the B2SB Facebook Page. While you are there, why not give the Facebook page a “Like” to show your support.
Calvary members support this event by collecting items that will be provided to the participants and volunteering on the day of the event.
We are accepting Volunteer Applications on the Mission Table. You may also want to start hunting for bargains because during the month of July we will emphasize a different Back to School Bash need each Sunday as follows:
July 7 – Happy Feet Sunday (all sizes and descriptions of socks for children and youth, including large)
July 14 – Backpack Bootie Sunday (school supplies for the backpacks from the lists available on the Mission Table)
July 21 – Funday Sunday (card and board games, puzzle books and jigsaw puzzles to be assembled into three large gift baskets for the door prize table)
July 28 – Individually packaged snacks or wrapped “fruit-flavored” candy (to be used as game prizes)
August 4 and 11 –Anything Goes Sundays (If you missed out on our July special Sundays, you may give a monetary gift or donate any of the above items on these two Sundays)
Be Prepared To Help Those in Need
Here’s an idea you can do on your own, totally independent of the Calvary Mission Program. Purchase a few $5 gift cards at your favorite fast food restaurant and keep them in your wallet. There are times you are asked for some help or want to observe a need or reward a kind deed. A $5 card to buy a light meal might be just the thing to light up the life of someone. Try it. You don’t have to report back or sign-up or register, and it is not bulky or cumbersome; it is just something you might want to do on your own as part of your ongoing commitment to reaching out to those in need.
