Supplies for Moms & Babies
posted: April 8, 2017

The Racial Justice task group thanks all who donated items for mom/baby diaper bags and for community baby showers for families in need, including women of color and some refugees. The items were distributed c/o the Jericho Road Community Health Center in Buffalo and the United Way. The idea was to make these moms feel special and feted for a day, while at the same time relieving some of the stress of providing for their infants.

Special thanks to Jessica Lustig, who delivered the items to Buffalo in time for distribution on Mother’s Day.

Please donate your deposit cans and bottles!

The Youth Group reminds the congregation that the donation of your deposit cans and bottles is greatly appreciated! Colleen, the owner of Cash for Cans (on Route 60 in just north of Route 83; driving from Rte. 20 it is housed in a large garage with a bright green roof on the left) has generously offered to continue keeping a tab for us for this ongoing fundraiser. Call ahead to check when they’ll be open: 716 672-2274.

All you need to do is drop off your deposit cans and bottles when you are out running errands. If you ever have trouble getting there or need help with a large accumulation, members of the Youth Group will pick up your contribution.

Every little bit helps! In 2011 we raised just over $150 in four months for our trip to Boston, and each year since we have raised a similar amount. Thank you for your support!
