The God’s Work, Our Hands Challenge is on!
A table spread of 12 beautiful, handmade baskets and gourds adorned our gathering space on Sunday, August 4th. There’s even one in the shape of an ant eater! These are ready to be filled to the brim with cash or checks between now and Sunday, September 8, to help support local and southern humanitarian programs.
This year, we’ll be supporting COTS in Burlington and two organizations working with migrants in Arizona.
- For COTS, we’ll be using the donations to purchase and fill laundry baskets with:
- Bed and bath items (towels, wash cloths, packaged bedding – full and twin size), unopened toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, foot powder, lotion, baby wipes, sunscreen, pads and tampons.
- Cleaning Products: Disinfecting wipes, all-purpose cleaners, glass cleaner, paper towels, dish soap, sponges, laundry detergent and dryer sheets.
- For Arizona Migrant Initiatives, our gift of money will help:
- Casa Alitas, Tucson, a shelter run by Catholic Community Services of Southern Arizona. Former Good Shepherd member volunteers there several times a week.
- Sahaurita Green Valley Samaritans, which assists the Kino Border Initiative with their shelter in Nogales, Mexico, provides water bottles, does humanitarian searches in the Sonoran desert, and is a presence in the Tucson federal courtroom for detained migrants.
Please make checks payable to: Good Shepherd, with God’s Work, Our Hands notation. Thank you.
