ingathering for The Indian Women’s Mission Center

During the month of August we will collect school supplies, backpacks and clothing for The Indian Women’s Mission Center in Orono Maine. See Heather Moretz’s note below. I have set up a table in the narthex.Thanks to those of you who respond generously to appeals to help people in need. This morning I will make my third trip in a little over three weeks to the Wayland Food Pantry!

We are trying to help an organization called ” The Indian Women’s Mission Center” in Orono, Maine. This week UNACC  received a handwritten letter asking for help. We have assisted them in the past with food, clothing and shoes. They are a registered 501c3 (non profit) organization who are looking for school supplies and used clothing (in good condition) for kids on their reservation. If people can help, I can pick them up at church and deliver them to UNACC, who will take them to Maine near the end of this month.

Items especially needed are: Pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, backpacks( gently used are fine) as well as gently used children’s clothing and shoes. I am sure winter clothing and boots would also be appreciated.  All and any school supplies are needed.

Thank you once again. People at Peace do so much for so many different causes and I know how much our help means to them. These items get directly to people that need them and will use them. Few organizations help reserve communities and they are among the poorest in the nation. Any help we can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Heather
