Many thanks to Craig Patton, the Christian Education Board and the youth who all helped to make this a fun evening! We're already gathering ideas for next year. See photos here…
Hunger Awareness Month, April 2012
Although Connecticut is one of the wealthiest states in the country, 94,985 children — that’s almost 12% of all children — live in poverty. And 16% of the children in Connecticut live in what is called “food insecure households” — they don’t have enough food to fully meet their basic needs.
On April 29th, the Saugatuck Church School, Youth Groups, and Confirmation Class participated in the Westport/Weston Crop Hunger Walk. CROP Hunger Walks are interfaith, community-wide, hunger education and fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations and groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. The first walk took place in 1969; now, more than 2,000 communities across the country join in more than 1,600 CROP Hunger Walks each year.
Although April is “Hunger Awareness Month,” unfortunately hunger is a problem 12 months of the year. Please drop off food donations each Sunday at the 10:00AM services, or during the week at the church office. Click here for a list of suggested non-perishable food drive items.
Winter Clothing Drive
Our Church School children and Youth Groups helped fight poverty "from the inside out" this winter by collecting new and gently-used winter clothing. All the coats, hats, scarves, boots, gloves and mittens were donated to the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, which estimates that they distribute 10,000 such items each winter.
12/12/2012: Bruce Ill, our Director of Christian Education & Youth Ministry, and Randy Christopherson, head of our Missions Board, delivered 14 huge bags of winter clothing to Dorian Shafer at the Bridgeport Rescue Mission. Thank you for your generous donations!
