After the morning worship service on Sunday, December 14th, stay and participate in Project Give to help Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC’s) development work globally and locally, as well as our Forest Heights Long Term Care neighbours. From assembling health kits, to knotting quilts, to making Christmas cards and crafty gifts, we have something for all ages. In the meantime, we need to collect enough health supplies for 150 kits so we need your help! Helping is as easy as 1-2-3. One, rip off a supply slip from the posters in the foyer. Two, buy your supplies. Three, show up on Sunday, Dec 14th with your supplies when we will assemble the kits to deliver to MCC.
Project GIVE is an annual event here at Westheights. We have chosen to do this rather than the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes in recent years due to our close relationship with MCC and the Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre.
We are asking you to contribute any one (or all!) of the following:
- 5 adult-size toothbrushes (in original packaging)
- 5 large bars of bath soap (leave in packaging)
- 5 fingernail clippers (good quality, not from dollar store)
- 5 dark-coloured hand towels (larger than fingertip towels)
Thank you for your generosity and loving kindness.
