Project Christina — toys for children
Would you like to help a child in crisis? Here is a win-win project. Purchase a $5 stuffed toy from Kohl’s where all the proceeds go to Golisano’s Children’s Hospital, and the toy is passed on to the Onondaga County Social Services Foster Care Division. When children are removed from their home a stuffed toy will be given to them to help ease their pain. We also accept new stuffed toys purchased elsewhere, books and re usable child friendly tote bags. There is a red collection box in Fellowship Hall. Thank you for helping these children.
Ushers are needed to assist on Sunday mornings. Please sign up on the sheet posted in Fellowship Hall, or contact Ed Betts at 373‑7718 or Tom Pelkey at 559‑3832.
