MILLER KEYSTONE BLOOD DRIVE

Miller Keystone will be here at the church to take blood on Saturday, February 24th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Once again, there is a serious need this time of the year. In addition this also benefits our congregation as it also makes blood available to us when in need.  We will need at least 20 signed up to have Miller Keystone come to the church.  Also keep in mind that we are trying to have Miller come to the church 3 times per year so be ready when we announce.  Thanks to all who have participated and may God bless us all.


thanks to all for “being a light”…

 

ELM CHRISTMAS DINNER

One of St. Anne’s annual outreach ministries is to assist Everlasting Life Ministries, in downtown Allentown, to provide their Christmas Dinner.  This year the dinner was held on December 16th.  16 turkeys were delivered and $80.00 cash donated to contribute to their celebration.  Thanks to all for your generosity!

 


DAYBREAK CHRISTMAS MEAL

The Outreach Team made another visit to Daybreak on December 18, 2017.  Once again, it was a great fellowship opportunity and another meal was successfully served!

Daybreak is a Lehigh County Conference of Churches program that reaches out to individuals who are active in or have  successfully completed treatment for mental health, HIV/AIDS, and/or drug/alcohol abuse. The program provides life skills training, talk time, membership, and 3 meals daily.

 ADVENT GIVING TREE

This year provided us an opportunity to once again gift the residents at Mosser Nursing Home.

Our tree graced the parish all, shining with lights and ornaments.  ALL the resident ornaments were taken home by our generous parish family and we saw beautifully wrapped gifts spread under the tree.  All the gifts were delivered helping to make Christmas a bit brighter for the residents! Thanks to all for once again sharing in this giving opportunity!

 

PLASTIC BOTTLE CAP COLLECTION 

– Collection abundance!  Project is on hold –  Stay tuned! 

Benefits those with a very real need, and allows us to recycle to boot!!!  (This is an ongoing Outreach project)
In our parish hall, you will find a box where you can place your plastic bottle caps. 5,000 bottle caps enable 3 dialysis treatments to a patient for            free.    May God bless all of us as we support this ministry.

 

SOLE HOPE 

 

 

 

Sole Hope…shoes for children
Offering hope, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief.
Collected jeans are used to make shoes for the children of Uganda.  They have a tremendous problem with “jiggers” getting in their feet since they don’t have shoes.  We take the used jeans and, using a template we cut patterns for the shoes.  Once we have enough jeans to get started with, we will hold a “shoe cutting” party.  Using a template, we cut the small shoe patterns from the jeans…that’s it!  the shoe patterns are sent to Uganda where they are stitched into shoes for the children. An easy way to recycle jeans and help the children of Uganda to be jigger free.

This is an ongoing project for the Outreach Team.  Whenever we have some jeans to cut they will be made into shoe patterns and sent to the Sole Hope Organization.

You can check out their website at www.solehope.org.  Here you can find out information on jiggers and how the foundation helps.  Or contact Sandy Barette (by contacting parish office).  Sandy works with the organization that sponsors this foundation.
