Throughout the month of November we will be holding a warm clothing drive to help the Prince George’s County School System meet the needs of newly arrived immigrant and refugee children who do not have clothing appropriate for our winter weather. You can help by contributing coats and jackets, new or gently used and clean, as well as hats, scarves, and gloves. The students range in age from 5 to 20, so sizes youth small to adult large are all welcome. Donations should be placed in the bin in the narthex. In addition, the school system would welcome Target gift cards which they can use to purchase other items students might need such as boots, socks, and uniforms. Target cards will be available for purchase during coffee hour and may be given to Donna or Randy Haselton or Peggy Alexander. Thank you for helping us support these new Prince George’s County students!

On Sunday, June 26, the Outreach and Social Justice Committee is holding a Bread Sunday in support of the food pantry sponsored by Help by Phone. The committee asks that you bring a loaf of bread, or two or three or more, on that Sunday and place it in bins located in the Narthex. If you have any questions, please see either Donna or Randy Haselton. Thank you for your support.
Also, the next Outreach and Social Justice Committee meeting will be Tuesday, July 5, instead of July 4.
