One Great Hour of Sharing!
How far are you willing to go so that people in water scarce regions no longer need to walk twelve miles to receive God’s promise of a life without hunger or thirst? The journey begins with One Great Hour of Sharing. Your generous gift supports life giving water. Let your love flow. For more information click here.
The Wish Project
We continue to be supporters of The Wish Project in Lowell. We are now able to go back into their warehouse on Saturday mornings to help sort donations.
They currently are only accepting volunteers from trusted groups who have volunteered in the past. Volunteer hours will be Saturday only between 9am and 3pm for now. You are welcomed to help out for any amount of time you can spare during these hours.
Wish will still be following Covid protocols with masks, temperature checks, hand sanitizer and distancing being adhered to.
We have also started a “clean sheets” project for Wish.
Many of the bed sheets that are donated to Wish are not washed before donation.
Understanding that their limited staff needed laundry assistance, we have started washing their unwashed sheets, folding, labeling and packaging them and returning them to Wish for distribution. There are currently many sets of sheets that need washing.
We are looking for volunteers to wash and dry one load of sheets per week.
If you are interested in helping please email Amber at the church email: UCCPelham@gmail.com
LAZARUS HOUSE - We are also reengaging with Lazarus house in Lawrence, MA. While volunteers are still not allowed on site yet, we can still deliver dinners during the month of June.
To sign up to provide a meal or for other volunteer opportunities in the coming months, LH is introducing a new Lazarus House Volunteer site. All volunteers will need to create an account (it’s quick and simple) and sign-up for meal donations using the link www.lazarushouse.volunteerhub.com
This new site will allow you to see the available dates to provide meals and will also give you a calendar viewing of ALL upcoming volunteer opportunities throughout the LH Ministry.
