January Altar Focus

This altar focus was one of our most popular last year and highly valued by the agencies which benefited: we challenged ourselves (and our ecumenical partners, just for good measure) to bring new pillows and new or used pillowcases to church for our altar focus this month. Pillows are items that are always in demand for the homeless population, and this collection will be split between Ministry on the Margins and the United Way homeless shelter. You may also bring bedding of any size – please bundle together and indicate size. We had a good response last year, with 70 pillows collected along with pillowcases and bedding. Let’s see if we can do even better this year! Thank you for your generosity!
