2020–What a success! We sent 47 satchels to the synod office for Seafarers Christmas 2020. Each bag had a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a knitted or crocheted hat and cowl set, 3 pairs socks, a Christmas card and a jar of peanuts. Thank you for your gifts for this project.
2021–Let’s do it again! January is a good time to shop for sale, because of the after-Christmas sales. Needed are men’s sweatshirts with or without a hood in sizes: MEDIUM, LARGE, OR EXTRA LARGE ONLY; t-shirts, short or long sleeves, in sizes: MEDIUM, LARGE, OR EXTRA LARGE ONLY (no seasonal, political, prints, thank you.) and three pairs of men’s crew socks.

SHEPHERD OF THE STREETS Family sized hygiene items are always a blessing and the Shepherd’s shelves are almost bare! A new collection basket is now located in the Bell Hall glass vestibule (across from the office entrance) for your donations, along with the basket in the West Hall. This continues to be a necessary part of our Shepherd of the Streets ministry.
** PLEASE NOTE the Bell Hall glass vestibule (across from the office entrance) doors are always open for your donations.
***UPDATE FORM THE FOOD PANTRY ***With the generous donations that have been coming in from many churches our shelves are now well stocked. We thank all the congregations still collecting donations for those in need and suggest that if possible, donations now come in financially. This will allow us more flexibility. We can purchase what we need as we need it, and not worry about expiration dates. And you will be safer not having to be out shopping. Checks or store gift cards can be sent to: United Churches (with memo – food pantry). The address is 202 E. Third St., Williamsport PA 17701.
