The WoM is collecting items for the entire month of March for “Room In The Inn,” a ministry of “Heart of My City” and H.O.P.E. (Helping Out People Everywhere). These organizations help the homeless in the Bullitt County area with their everyday needs, as well as feeding them on a daily basis. We will be collecting these items beginning Sunday, March 5 and ending March 26. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
Heart of my City needs:
Pillows (regular size) **Immediate need**
Twin sheets sets for cots
Feminine products such as pads, mini pads, and tampons
Travel size hand sanitizer
Packages of puppy pads (for use on children’s cots)
H.O.P.E. needs (for backpacks)
Clothing: socks (men’s, women’s, children’s)
Towels, washcloths, twin blankets
Non-perishable food: water, foods with pull tabs (pork & beans, fruit, etc.), 16 oz peanut butter
Travel size hygiene products: hand sanitizer, shampoo, deodorant (men’s and women’s)
The WoM collects box tops for education to send to the Oneida Baptist Institute. These labels are found on soup cans, cake mixes, and other grocery items. The labels are cashed in for school items that help the children at Oneida. It will be very much appreciated if you will save these labels and bring them to the church office.
The WoM are doing a mission project to feed the hungry people of the world. We are collecting $1 a month from each person who will give. The children should also be involved so they can learn the joy of giving. At the end of each month, the money will be counted and sent to the Southern Baptist Convention World Hunger Fund to be used immediately. 20% of the money stays in North America and 80% is sent overseas.
Because the SBC’s World Hunger Fund works through missionaries and other Southern Baptist representatives already on site, there are no administrative or promotional costs. Every dollar given is used to alleviate hunger, and those who share the food also share the Gospel message. Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger somewhere in the world, and 75% are children according to statistics compiled for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.
A collection box is on each foyer table.
