MISSION TEAM NEWS
The Missions Team is collecting gently used or new shoes for children ages preschool - 3rd grade for our friends in Guatemala. Sneakers are preferred because of the mountainous terrain. They will be collecting from Sunday, May 5th, until Sunday, June 23rd. Donation boxes will be located in the hallway outside the Fellowship Hall. Don & Carol Pierce along with Heather Knowles and her son Spencer will be distributing the shoes in person during their trip to Guatemala. Thank you so much for sharing your love for our neighbors in need.

To put in a request please contact program coordinators, Harry Boyd or Don Pierce. Information regarding local sources which may be of assistance will be provided if a request cannot be handled by our volunteer base.
