Lend a helping hand
Sort and organize donations for Afghan allies. The drive has concluded but there are still items to prepare for pickup. Drop by to help Friday, September 24, from 4 - 6 pm.
Help paint the exterior cinder block wall behind the sanctuary. It will involve work on ladders (using paint rollers), so both painters and ladder holders are needed. The goal is to complete the project before the end of October. We can schedule the work (probably 2-3 hours) whenever volunteers are available, but a Saturday seems most likely. If you are willing to help, please email Gerry Fuller or the office.
