Care Kit Ministry Meetup 11:10 AM (Setup) & 11:30 AM (Assembly)

Our next St. Luke Care Kit Ministry Meetup will be on Sunday, October 3rd at 11:10 AM for Setup and 11:30 AM for Assembly at St. Luke in the Fellowship Hall to help assemble the Personal Care Kits and a delivery the next day, Monday, October 4th. 

 

Our ministry provides much needed Personal Care Kits consisting of six necessities i.e. toothbrush and paste, deodorant, chap stick, sunscreen and body wipes. Your support for this ministry gives local unhoused people hope and a bit of a personal boost--a sign that God exists for them--and also that someone cares. We continue to seek volunteers who would like to create thank you letters and greeting cards for the people honored by a donation or help with set up and assembly of the Care Kits! Stay tuned for our next Care Kit Ministry get together!

THIS IS OUR GOD’S WORK, OUR HANDS DESIGNATED MINISTRY (along with Clean Streets on 9/25)!  PLEASE CONTRIBUTE IN CELEBRATION OF LIFE, IN HONOR OR MEMORY OF SOMEONE OR SIMPLY AS A SIGN OF HOPE FOR THE WORLD!

 

Online contributions can be made by clicking here: DONATE. Questions or interested in volunteering? Contact Janice Pontoppidan 818-880-4497 (Please Leave a message!)
