The drive will benefit two local organizations at the same time:
1. Good Shepherd Lutheran Church’s infant to teen clothing pantry. GSLC offers these much needed clothes to neighborhood families and those who come to the weekly food pantry. Currently the clothing bins are running low. GSLC and our area social workers always appreciate donations to families they serve. The pantry seeks gently used infant through teen spring/summer clothing (no shoes, socks, underwear or winter clothing). There is a special need for boys sizes 18 – 20! Spring is a good time for our kids to go through their closets and donate items they’ve outgrown!
2. United Way’s Reach Dane program is inviting area churches to participate in a Sneaker Drive to benefit infants and toddlers who are experiencing homelessness. They are collecting NEW shoes of any kind, socks, and underwear for these children. See attached flier for details!
Please drop off your donations in the Crossroads before/after worship on Sunday, April 16th and/or Sunday April 23rd.
We are seeking volunteers to help organize and box or bag donations during and post service on both Sundays. Please contact Giulia Lawrence at [email protected] if you can help out.
Thanks to you in advance for supporting our youngest neighbors in need! Please email LuAnn Greiner at [email protected] with general questions.
