(Do to constraints of Labor Day Weekend supplies will be collected through August 28 and delivered August 29) Check the easel in the Narthex for details and take as many wish slips from the zip lock bag as you feel you can fulfill. If you have taken a slip for something that needs refrigeration and can be frozen (lunch meat, margarine, cheese, etc.), please place that item in a well-marked container in the deep freeze in “Laura’s-Not- A-Basement”. With your help we can help ease the suffering of these families in need. Thank you.
