Lauren Findlay is raising money to make care backpacks. These backpacks will be filled with essentials for those who are less fortunate. They will be stocked with things like hairbrushes, food, a T-shirt and other necessary items. Lauren has made friends with some of the homeless people in her town and has heard about how these things would benefit them. She says, "We all take things like soap, and clean socks for granted when these people are lucky to have a sock with only one hole. All money raised is going towards supplies for these backpacks. Monetary or supplies donations (soap, body wash, wash cloths, shampoo and conditioner, tissues, tampons and/or sanitary napkins, socks, non-perishable snacks, etc.) are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance."
If you would like to receive the new and improved, full color church newsletter, The Church Mouse, please send an e-mail to MLCoffice@markhamlutheranchurch.org so that it can be e-mailed to you. Very few copies will be mailed via USPS due to the expense of color copying and postage. Don't worry that you'll be inundated with e-mails from the church. We primarily communicate via our website, Facebook and the weekly service bulletin. And, of course, the newsletter is available for reading here on the website.
