Men's Shelter Funding Update

Men's Shelter Funding Update

The Outreach Ministries of Old First have been working hard on a plan of action for the men’s shelter. We are scheduled to open November 1st like we have every year. The Shelter Ministry team and Old First staff have begun working on fundraising and we welcome any new ideas.

As part of our Mission 1 plan, we are hoping to get a cumulative gift of $11,111 for the 2010-2011 shelter. We plan to achieve this by November 11. We are asking our sister congregations to help us in raising funds so that we can continue our ministry to the homeless men in Center City Philadelphia.

We have planned a Rummage Sale, Flea Market and Bake Sale for September 17th (8:30am-5:00pm). We are hoping to sell table space to outside folks  and Old First members can donate goods for us to sell or host their own table. This is something new for Old First but we hope that it’s a success!

You can help by:

You can donate goods Sep 3rd (this Sunday) or next Sunday, Sep 10th during worship.

Volunteering to bake goods for us to sell.

Volunteering your time on Sep 17th.

Making a financial contribution to our Mission 1 goal and shelter fund.

Bringing your fundraising ideas to any Wellspring member.

Spread the word about our Rummage Sale to your friends, everyone loves a church Rummage Sale!

Thanks for supporting Old First’s Outreach Ministries,
