We see Lent as a time for youth to give back to the community and to give to others the opportunities they may not otherwise have. This year, we are looking for donations to support Christian Community Action (CCA) of New Haven in providing job readiness supplies to those in need and seeking employment.
CCA provides emergency housing, food, and a variety of support services, including case management, job search assistance programs, family counseling, and workshops, to families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness. CCA is in need of both bus passes and interview supplies for their clients.
We are asking for monetary donations from the congregation to purchase bus passes to allow a means of transportation to a job interview. We are asking Sunday School families to contribute specific supplies.
Pre-K and 2-3 classes - packs of pens, pencils and pencil boxes
K-1, 4-5, and 6-7 classes - 2019 or 2019/2020 planners.
All donations will be put together by the youth on Palm Sunday to prepare for delivery to CCA. Thank you in advance for your support!

These donations are Tax Deductible and will help our local community!
Thank you, again, for your generosity.
