Churches United For the Homeless

 The Outreach Committee, along with many other churches and organizations has chosen to join Churches United for The Homeless. This months project for First Lutheran is "Health Kits" containing personal hygiene items such as bath towel, wash cloth, soaps, tooth brushes, etc. Please consider helping us reach our goal of 25 health kits. We have a fall tree decorated with turkeys, leaves and acorns with an item named on each.

 We need your assistance to complete this project by November 30th.

You can pick up one of these tags, purchase the item and place item in the tote box  marked

 "Churches United for the Homeless"

 We will assemble the kits in December and bring to Churches United. 

Thank You for your participation!
