Refugee support opportunity

GIG (Gals in Guatemala) will be participating in a mission trip to McAllen, TX, in October, working with the Sacred Heart Respite Center, where 200+ refugees a day are being welcomed and serviced. If you sew, we invite you to make pillow covers with a zipper for 12 x 16 inch pillows for the refugees. We will take the pillow covers with us and will order the pillows and have them shipped to McAllen. If you don’t sew, but would like to help, gift cards from Joann’s Fabrics or Amazon, or cash donations would help cover the cost of the pillows. Please see/contact Carolyn Thalman (cjthalman@comcast.net) for more information and suggested instructions for making the pillows.

Thank you! A successful school supply drive for local schoolchildren!

With the support of many generous individuals, businesses, faith communities, and other organizations, FACETS works with their clients to end the cycle of poverty. Thank you to all at FPC who helped the children in FACETS’ programs start the school year ready to learn by contributing school supplies: back packs, notebooks, report holders, pens and pencils, crayons and markers, glue and glue sticks. The children “shopped” for school supplies at one of several locations August 16-18. On behalf of the children and parents served by FACETS, thank you for your ongoing support!
