- Pop-Tops from cans: The POP TOPS from your aluminum cans help ill children and their families at the Ronald McDonald House.
- Donate Old Eyeglasses, Old Hearing Aids and Cell Phones to be delivered to the Lions Club for recycling.
- Box-Tops for Education are being collected and donated to Lincoln Elementary School.
- “Touch of Love” Dignity Bags for the Homeless - One way we can help people standing on street corners with signs asking for help is by handing out “Touch of Love” bags. We, as a congregation, donate the items to be used, and at the end of every month assemble these bags during fellowship time. Our goal is to assemble at least 40 so that each family can take a bag to leave in their vehicle. When anyone encounters an individual looking for help they can give them one of the bags.
- Good Samaritan Fund - In response to the many needs around us, “The Good Samaritan Fund” has been established to provide food and gas vouchers. A special offering collected on the third Sunday of each month supports this ministry.
- Diaper Bank - 5.8 million babies in the U.S. aged three and younger live in poor or low-income families. 1 out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers. Diapers cost up to $100 per month, per baby. Food Stamps cannot be used for diapers. Most child care centers, even free and subsidized facilities, require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are not accepted at the vast majority of child care centers. Many parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.
