Come Help Us Get The Word Out About FCC!
FCC will have a booth at Celebrate Holliston on Sept. 16th from 9-3. We are looking for volunteers to take an hour and "man" our booth. We have printed materials and fun giveaways for all. This is great way to let the community know the wonderful things we are doing at our church. There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board outside of the office. Please sign up and spread the word about FCC. Questions? Contact Elaine Stewart-Hart or Cynthia Listewnik. See you there!
Undies for Everyone
In response to the hurricane, which has left so many in Texas without basic items, Christian Outreach is sponsoring a collection of new, packaged underwear for adults and children in all sizes (including maternity). The idea comes from one of our church youth, Oliver Brown, and he and his mom, Eva have volunteered to mail the items down to Texas once they are collected. The organization we are supporting is called "Undies for Everyone." Here is the link to Amazon for their wish list, or you can just pick up some packages of underwear locally.
All underwear should be new and in its original, unopened packaging. The organization will distribute them to people in shelters who left their homes without any of their personal possessions.
