Annual Outreach Yard Sale: It's a wrap!!

June 8th was a beautiful weather day and another financially successful day. Thank you to all who helped to setup and take down tables, unpack boxes, sell, and repack boxes at the end of the day. An additional $582 was added to the Outreach bottom line which will help support our summertime ministries. THANK YOU TO ALL!

St Paul 's Soup Kitchen: Updates and dates to remember
Much needed toiletry items were collected and delivered to St Paul 's for distribution on an as needed basis. Outreach funds were used to fill in the gaps.

As reported previously, our evening meal responsibilities increase to 2-3 times per month during the summertime. We have had a very successful fundraising year resulting in only the need for "servers" for the following dates in July and August:

2nd Monday: July 8th, August 12th, September 9th
4th and 5th Tuesday: July 23rd, July 30th, August 27th

Please check your calendars to see if you can lend a helping hand. This is a good opportunity to fulfill some of those required community service hours for our high schoolers. Individuals and families are encouraged to consider participation. If you have any questions regarding this mission, please contact Betsy Peterson at 978-658-0355 or at bpeter62@comcast.net.

HUGE THANK YOU TO TROOP #63134 led by Deanna Wright, for proving 130+ brownies and for serving the guests of St. Paul 's on June 10th. It was a pleasure to have each and every one of these girls and their moms share their cooking talents and giving of their time.

Back Pack Attack: To benefit "The Wish Project", https://thewishproject.org Although our youngsters have just completed their 2018-19 school year, the big yellow school buses will be rolling down our streets again before we know it.

Starting in mid-July there will be a school supply signup sheet to fill backpacks for K-12 children of low income families living in the Merrimack Valley Area. As in the years past, Outreach will purchase 48 backpacks with a goal to fill 12 with the much needed supplies to start another academic year. Please place your name next to an item(s), use the provided post it note to write yourself a reminder, and return all items to the drop off box by August 11th so that we can ensure delivery to recipients on time for the first day of school.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of others!!!
