2018 OUTREACH, MISSION & FELLOWSHIP – COMMUNITY and CHURCH FAMILY

* Most food shelves receive a plethora of donations during the holiday season but notice that their shelves begin to get bare as the winter months drag on.  The Outreach Committee would like to issue

a CHALLENGE to the Brownsville Community Church Family.  Before & during the Lenten Season, we hope to collect 150 items or more for the West Windsor-Reading Food Shelf.  Please check expiration dates. So, starting now, consider yourself CHALLENGED and let the giving begin.  All donations are welcome.

From time to time within our own BCC Church Family, we have people in need. If you are able to make & freeze a meal for just such an occasion, OMF volunteers will make certain it gets to one of these members of our BCC family.

* Thank you for your donations of new children’s pajamas and underwear to support the Clothing Room at the Reading-West Windsor Food Shelf!

For questions on any of these programs, contact Kathi Leary (802-674-2320 or cknaleary@comcast.net) or Linda Ley (802-484-3200 or ParrisHill@comcast.net).
