Zion had designated the month of May to support the care ministry for cancer patients Phi’s Friends. Zion’s Quilters & Crafters took a very supportive effort, as did our Early Childhood Education Center. Along with many individual members and families we collected a goodly amount of items and a nice monetary collection. On June 12 seven large cartons were shipped to Phil’s Friends national headquarters in Roselle, Illinois. That shipment included the following:
13 fleece blankets
12 crocheted blankets
117 knit caps
93 pairs of fuzzy socks
37 baseball hats
30 decks of playing cards
30 misc. game/puzzle books
1 $25 gift card for JoAnn’s Fabrics
In addition the monetary collection being sent totaled $825!
Thanks to all who helped to support this effort with their time, talent, treasure and prayers for our participation and for this special ministry. May God continue to bless Zion and all those ministries that we as individuals and a congregation support.
