We exceeded our Church World Service kit drive goals!
We set out to make 39 cleanup buckets and 39 hygiene kits–one for each congregation in our presbytery.
We received gifts of $4,093 and many donations of kit items. On Sunday, October 1, twenty members and friends of the Covenant and Ewing churches met, organized, and worked, with final touches made the week of October 8, resulting in 115 hygiene kits and 53 cleanup buckets, and $992.24 to donate to CWS left over! In addition, churches in our presbytery (between April and October) donated another 44 hygiene kits and 10 cleanup buckets. See all the fabulous details HERE.
Remember, Covenant Church continues to serve as a kit depot… and the CWS truck comes next in April 2018. Kits are welcome any time–contact the church office to arrange your dropoff (609.989.8282).
How shall we “provoke one other to love and good deeds” next? (Hebrews 10:24)
Gratefully, Covenant Church, Ewing Church, and the Social Witness Working Group
