November 1st is a special day in the life of Old First and for the 30 homeless guests who will sleep each night in our Social Hall throughout the winter months. The church provides foam mats for our guests to sleep on the floor. As a welcome gift, we would like to offer each guest a pillow and warm blanket from members of the congregation. The pillows must be new. The blankets can be new or slightly used, but definitely clean.
We have only one Sunday left before the Shelter opens. If you would like to participate in providing a pillow or blanket as a welcome gift to our Shelter guests, please bring them to church next Sunday, October 28, and place them here in the Altar area.
The Outreach SLG will make sure your gifts are distributed to our guests when they enter their winter home here at Old First on November 1. Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
