Clothing Exchange Ends: The Clothing Exchange mission has been part of Messiah for many years with many contributors and workers. However, the number of contributions and especially the number of workers has dwindled to a few. Therefore, the time has come to change and refocus our efforts and commitment to help others.
The clothes that members had previously donated and that have been stored in the Shaheen Hall closet have been distributed to Daniel’s Closet, YWCA, and the American Rescue Workers. Any future donations from members can be given directly to these organizations.
A BIG THANK YOU to all who have been part of this ministry. Let us now focus our attention to BLANKET SUNDAY, SEAFARERS SATCHELS, and CHRISTMAS WHITE GIFTS.
