VISITORS FOR NOVEMBER – all Deacons will visit this month.
Our corresponding secretary sent 14 cards.
Jann suggested we purchase socks and T-shirts for distribution at the Clothes Closet. Those items seem to be in greatest need. Jann will shop for the items.
Bill reported that he did some repair work at the home of one of the recipients of the Guardian Angels group. There was discussion about another family with flooding/sewage issues. He will look into the details of that repair to see if the Deacons can help in any way.
We will send a donation to Meals on Wheels at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Paulette revealed that $290 was collected from the baskets/tickets sales at the BBQ.
Jann stated that the Clothes Closet accepts Bibles.
Angel gift sign up sheets will be available on November 11 and 18. We are asking that the gifts be returned by December 2 so we can get them to the Food Bank for distribution on December 11.
Toiletries for shut ins is tentatively scheduled for December 8.
The Deacons continue to volunteer at the Round Hill Clothes Closet each month. Remember to use small sized grocery bags for your contributions – also the clothes should be clean and appropriate for the season.
Please notify the church office or one of the Deacons if you know of anyone who needs our services.
