Blessing Bags: Donations Needed
Help First U Help Our Neighbors

The Midtown Helping Hands Team (Neighborhood Ministry Team) needs more Blessing Bags. The winter months can be rough for those without shelter, those without permanent homes, those living in shelters, and those who simply need help. It’s easy to take for granted having personal care items on hand: soap, shampoo, a comb, chap stick, cotton swabs, Band-Aids, a new pair of socks, warm gloves. Please help us create Blessing Bags so the church can give them out at the door.

There are two ways to help:
Donate items needed for the bags and/or help build the bags on Blessing Bag Day on September 8th.

Invite friends to this event who would like to donate. We will have a volunteer here at the church on Sunday, August 27 from 12-2pm accepting donations.

Check with the church office with questions ([email protected]). You can donate in increments.
Thank you!
