Be Warm

Do you knit or crochet? Are you out shopping sales?

We deliver to 2 local shelters and there are so many cold men and women outdoors who are in need of a hat, gloves or scarf.

If you have NEW warming items, I will get them to the people in need. We have some of our own parishioners who go down and serve and hand out warming items. Please help me help them.

You can bring them to the narthex or front office.

Thank you

Peace, Kim Houseman

Eagle Scout – Food Drive for Angels Place

My name is Nick Sliney. I am a parishioner at St. Anastasia and a Life scout in BSA Troop 1707. My Eagle Scout project will include a “Food Drive” to help stock the food pantry at the Angel’s Place main office. Angel’s Place is a non-profit organization that provides people-centered services, including homes and professional support, for adults with developmental disabilities.

The “Food Drive” will be held the weekend of January 24 – 25th. A box will be in the church narthex labeled “Angel’s Place Food Drive”.

  • Items of greatest need include: canned fruit, fruit snack packs, soups, broth, oatmeal, cereal, tuna, boxed cake, cookie, brownie mixes, gluten-free items, paper towels, napkins, plastic trash bags and hand pump soaps.
  • Thank you for your donation to Angel’s Place.

Project Mickie

Please deliver clean blankets to Faith@Work – Troy.

Please spread the word to your friends about a blanket drive we are hosting at Faith @ Work inspired by Mickie Roquemore.

We will work with other organizations to get blankets on the streets to those not going to the shelters.  We all have blankets in our closets that are not being used.  Take a few minutes this weekend to gather a few.  It is so very tragic to learn of a human being freezing to death so close to our homes.

PROJECT MICKIE
Join us as we collect freshly laundered blankets, hats and gloves in honor of Mickie Roquemore. Mickie is the gentleman who froze to death on a front porch in Pontiac, on New Years Day. Let us bring good out of the tragic loss of his life and let us honor his memory by helping others.

Please drop your blankets, hats, gloves at Faith @ Work. We will work with other organizations like Song & Spirit to make certain they get to those on the streets.

Spread the word and pray for the homeless.
