MINISTRY OF MERCY NEWS
The Ministry of Mercy is asking for your support for 2 local outreach ministries. A local woman makes baby blankets & scarves that are given to Helping Hands & EMPCC to distribute as needed and is in need of yarn. The Ugly Quilts ministry- organized by the Spring Hill UM women- is continually in need of the following:
1. Items to make the quilts: blankets, sheets, pillow cases, afghans, draperies, curtains, comforters, towels, fabric, mens ties, #8 crochet cotton, sewing thread, & 4 ply yarn
2. Items to wrap inside of the quilts: gloves, hats, scarves, socks, mens clothing(T-shirts, jeans, sweatshirts & pants, underwear), toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, religious tracts, & toiletries( travel size from hotels). The items to make the quilts & the clothing can be new or used.
The Ugly Quilts crew works Monday mornings and could use some additional helpers both to make quilts and also to crochet/knit gloves, hats, scarves, & socks.
Raid your closets for above items and help these ministries help those in need. There will be a box in the church entrance for your donations. For more information call Jeannie at (570) 746-6145.
