We will be having a clothing drive for the Hope Rescue Mission. Last September, they opened a new center called The Lighthouse. This new building is designated specifically for women and children.

The Missions Committee will sponsor a workday for a residence in Reading on Saturday, November 15, 9 am to 2 pm.
Volunteers are crucial in keeping the cost of homes affordable for low income families who purchase them from Habitat for Humanity of Berks County. One important note: All volunteers on the site must be at least 16 years of age, and any-one under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who will sign a waiver for them.
Please wear old clothes and sturdy shoes (No open-toed shoes are allowed). Work gloves are needed and will be provided if you don’t have your own. Sign in at the job site approximately 15 minutes prior to scheduled time and bring a bagged lunch/drink. Tools are not necessary but if you choose to use your personal tools, bring them at your own discretion. The construction manager will assess your ability and have you do something you are comfortable doing.
There’s a sign-up sheet in the Wagner Room. Contact Jim Eckert with questions.
