Generous Hearts in December
THANK YOU for your great generosity in December! Here are some highlights:
Angel Tree donations supported four charities in a big way:
- Delivered 100 bags of toiletries for residents of Open Door Ministries;
- 600 tubes of toothpaste for inmates at Guilford County Jail;
- Many cans of food & Lovefeast offering of $693 for Out of the Garden Project to fight hunger
- Winter coats and warm clothing for children at Peck Elementary.
You gave enough socks, gloves and scarves for 125 homeless guests at Greensboro Urban Ministry not only for our Dec 18th dinner, but for January as well! We cooked and served the guests and sang carols.
Our matching offering on December 18th was an amazing $55,118 for our general budget catch-up.
Last week, the outpouring of donations for a local Syrian refugee family was greeted by big smiles of a mother, father and their five boys. Our Christmas Eve offering ($2,500) goes to our Refugee Fund to help pay rent and household expenses. Another family arrives in mid January.
