The Human Care board sponsors many activities throughout the year to care for community needs. These activities include blood drives, Bottles for Babies, cards for Military and Shut-ins, a Hat and Glove Tree for Christmas and Take-a-Sack and Bring-it-Back. They also organize meals for families in need.
The next Red Cross blood drive is to be determined. Sign up on-line at http://www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROS (1-800-733-2767) or sign up in the narthex.
BOTTLES FOR BABIES – April/May
A basket of empty baby bottles will be available in the Narthex. Please plan to take one or more home with you and fill with coins and bills. A check is acceptable too … Make checks payable to the Oxford Pregnancy Center. On MOTHER’S DAY, please bring your filled bottle and place it back in the basket in the Narthex. The Oxford Pregnancy Center is a non-profit Christian agency. They do not receive any state or federal funding. They rely on churches, local organizations, businesses and individuals for funding. They provide material, educational, spiritual and emotional support for women/teens facing an unplanned pregnancy. A M.O.M.S. program is available for these young mothers who keep their babies for continued support with child rearing during the baby’s 1st year of life. Thank you for your generosity and prayers.
