 Save the date for the 2018 HUNGER WALK at Keystone State Park on September 23rd.

Money raised from pledges will be donated to The Westmoreland Food Bank, New Alex Emergency Food Bank and RISE AGAINST HUNGER.

If you would like to participate in the Meal Packaging on October 20th—Sign up at http//

We are still collecting good reusable shoes. For the month of June, they are paying more for athletic shoes which include tennis shoes and non-metal cleats.


      The RISE AGAINST HUNGER (formerly called STOP HUNGER NOW) sign-up sheet is in the narthex. The meal packaging event will happen on Saturday, October 20, 2018. We need helpers to unload the truck and package the meals. Many of you participated in 2014 & 2015 so we hope you will participate again. But we welcome new volunteers. We are planning to pack 20,000 meals during two time slots, please sign up if you can. We need $6000 to purchase the ingredients that go into the meals. We have raised about $3500 to date.

    Thanks to you if you have donated gently used shoes, we earn 50 per pound for those shoes. We will continue to collect shoes so ask your family or neighbors if they have shoes to donate.

     Thanks also to you if purchased a fleece blanket, the profit from those purchases also went to Rise Against Hunger. Judy has many more for sell so if you need a gift for a baby shower or a birthday, let her know.



SCRIP CARDS orders can be placed the first Sunday of each month. Please think about ordering SCRIP cards to support the church. . Some cash and carry cards are available every Sunday for purchase.  Are you shopping at Giant Eagle because of the fuel perks? Buy Giant Eagle cards from CUP and you are helping the church and yourself at the same time. Not sure what gift cards you are going to need next month? Purchase a Giant Eagle card and you can purchase any card at Giant Eagle you need. Yes, you still get the fuel perks. If you have questions about this program see Judy or Lisa.


     You can still donate all kinds of textiles including clothing, shoes and all the accessories you wear: hats, belts, purses. Bag them up and put them in the blue bins at the corner of the parking lot. You can also bag up sheets, towels, curtains, tablecloths, any kind of linens. These items will be recycled and the church will receive a check. This is an ongoing project so please keep filling up the bins.


Collect Boxtops for Education and deposit them in the box in the narthex. Many products have several boxtops this time of year. These boxtops are each worth 10 cents. We send them to an Indian Reservation where they can purchase much needed supplies for their school.
