At Left: Barbara Krause, Fr Mark Brown, and Beverly Sorensen delivering a check from St Martha’s to Alzheimers Assoc. Brian Dannecker Exec Director accepting it. This was from the Kingsley Ave Cafe event held by St Martha's Guild in November 2017. It event was held again November 3, 2018, again for the benefit of Alzheimers Assoc, and Safe Horizons for Battered Women.
The Cross Road Foundation is asking for donations of new clothing and diapers. Donations may be left at the back of the church. We are again collecting coats for the residents of Lakeside Manor. Gently worn coats for both men and women are needed. Please leave them in the back of the church for distribution.
We continue to serve Lakeside Manor at 2:30 PM on Sundays with a Eucharist service followed by refreshments served by volunteers. Would you like to be a part of this? All volunteers are welcome.
Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
St. Martha’s Guild helps a group of thoughtful caring people who make sleeping bags for the homeless of NYC out of used clean linens. It is called “My Brother’s Keeper Quilts”. The bags are delivered right out there on the street to the homeless. Supplies needed are blankets, sheets, towels and neckties which are used to hold the rolled bags together. Hats, gloves, coats, scarves and men’s underwear are also needed, as well as thread, sewing needles, sample size toiletries, as well as money to help defray expenses. If you can help, let Bev or any other member of St. Martha’s know. Donations may be left under the coat rack in the back of the Church, labeled “Brother’s Keeper”.
A “Giving Tree”, where parishioners provide gifts for battered women and their children at a local shelter, has become a part of our Christmas tradition.
