Calvary’s Mission activities are ongoing throughout the year. This listing is routinely updated to provide you the status of our projects. Please check back each week for updates and ways you can become involved.
ICCAP Food Collections
Thank you for your October food donations! October’s total was 235 pounds. We will continue with the holiday, ingredients for both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. You may think of other items, but here are some ideas for your donations: boxed mashed and scalloped potatoes, boxed stuffing, canned cranberries, vegetables and fruits, pumpkin and other pie fillings. sweet potatoes, applesauce, gravy, chicken and turkey broth, brown and white sugar, pumpkin spices, canned milk, mushroom soup, onion rings, pie crust mix, and other dessert mixes.
Please be generous with your donations as needs are great at the ICCAP food pantries and our monthly donations slowed down over the summer.
Trades of Hope
Janet Davis Treacy, Compassionate Entrepreneur and Calvary member, has generously offered to donate a commission from Trades of Hope orders this fall and holiday season to Rally for Rwanda. Please consider Trades of Hope for holiday gift-giving. Every Fair Trade gift purchased is providing sustainable income to women around the world. Several catalogs are available on the Mission table. Please leave those copies on the table, but you can view the online catalog, at www.mytradesofhope/JanetDavisTreacy. Janet will happily answer questions or help you place an order.
In addition, two Calvary members hosted a Trades of Hope party and have donated their free product prizes to the Mission Committee to offer for sale. All proceeds from any sales of these items displayed on the Mission Table will be given to Rally for Rwanda. Even though Christmas is almost eight weeks away, perhaps you would like to take advantage of these hand-made gift items. Please see Kay Smith, Becky Becker or Janet Treacy if you are interested in any of these items or to order from the catalog.
Habitat for Humanity
This organization is struggling. They need volunteers for their Board, construction workers, financial support, and most importantly, real estate that they can make habitable. For more information, check out www.habitatforindianacounty.org. Habitat is actively searching for a “fixer upper” house to either tear down and build from scratch or rehabilitate. If you know of any low-priced “fixer-upper” houses, preferably $20,000 to $25,000, please call Jim Sisitki at (724) 397-5546. Details will appear in the November newsletter.
Mugs for Members
Now available at the Visitors’ Information Center are specially designed Calvary mugs. All donations for mugs will go to the Care and Outreach fund, which offers financial support to the most vulnerable in our neighborhood. Get a mug, make a donation, and help a person in need.
