Ruth Circle Thanks!

The ladies of the Ruth Circle want to thank everyone who donated cookies and baked goods for the annual bake sale!  Big thanks to everyone who purchased items too!  We raised $661 to be split between ELCA World Hunger and Crossways Camps.

Got Milk? The congregation responded overwhelmingly to the cookie challenge. We received at least 40 dozen cookies that we packaged up for the Family Promise Christmas Party.  And our very own Rick Loehrl was the “big guy” himself at the Christmas party!

St. John’s provided 30 gifts for families in Family Promise. Gifts included warm clothing, DVDs, toys, craft kits, and gift cards.  We collected a LOT of the basics that Family Promise families need as they transition from homelessness to having a home. Including: 34 various cleaning supplies like dishsoap, paper towels, mops, and cleaners 19 personal care items such as TP, shampoo, lotion, and shaving supplies 7 setting-up-a-home items such as sheets, pillows, and silverware. 

Our Winter Warmth Tree was covered from top to bottom with hats for our friends at All People’s Church.  We collected 54 hats, 44 gloves/mittens, and 27 scarves.    Thank you to everyone for your generosity!
