Happy Fall Everyone~
The Outreach Ministry recently met in October to develop new outreach plans for the holidays. In the past, we have gathered to put together boxes of Thanksgiving dinners for families in the Wilsonville area. Our goal is still to support 40 families whose children attend the Wilsonville Primary and Middle Schools (with donations and prayer). However, due to covid, we are instead sending to the families a Thanksgiving greeting from St. Francis Church, along with a Fred Meyer Gift Card. The families will pick up the cards at their child's local school, which is a trusted "hub" for families during this time of social distancing.
We need your help! We estimate that feeding a family of 4 is $50 and for a family of 5+ about $100 for a total of around $3,500.
Please send in your check, in any amount by November 20th, with "Thanksgiving Outreach" in the notes/memo line. You can make a difference for families who are struggling economically!
Blessings, the Outreach Ministry
p.s. Christmas will be here soon, and we will also make new outreach plans and let you know them.
