Donation Match

All financial contributions made to Heart to Heart from November 1 through December 31 will be matched up to $20,000. As of Thursday, we have raised $14,627.25. With the increase in both demand and cost of food in recent months, the food pantry needs additional financial resources more than ever. Please know that your doubled donation will be doubly appreciated this year! We are grateful to Jill and Duke Thomas for their support through this matching grant.

Sponsors Needed

Heart to Heart has been overwhelmed with calls requesting sponsorship for Christmas gifts. In fact, we received so many inquiries that we are no longer accepting requests for sponsorship- but we still need sponsors! As of now, there are about 70 families that need sponsors. Please consider sponsoring one or more families through the purchase of Christmas gifts. We encourage group sponsorships. For instance, your guild, book club, or department at work can combine resources to provide support for an entire family. The Christmas shopping season is about to begin, and we would like to ensure all these families have support by December 9. If you can sponsor a family, please email Kitty Rohrer kfrohrer@gmail.com with your contact details. More details about how the program operates are available at h2h.FCchurch.com/christmas2022.

Announcement

Reinstating Client Visit Limit

Beginning January 1, Heart to Heart will limit client visits to once every 30 days. We are grateful for the support that allowed us to lift this restriction during the pandemic. However, we continue to face supply and demand issues that will force us to impose it once again. Clients will be informed of the decision over the coming weeks as they visit the pantry by volunteers and through print.

Thanksgiving Food Drive

A food collection will take place during all worship services on Sunday, November 13. The deacons will then help pack these donations for clients to be distributed prior to Thanksgiving.

Call for Volunteers

Next weekend will be a busy one for Heart to Heart. We will hold our annual Thanksgiving food drive, plus Yohan and I will be speaking in worship. After worship, I will also be working on some long overdue organizing projects. I would love to have a group of people to help on Sunday, November 13 to cleanup of some areas used by Missions, including Heart to Heart, the Refugee Ministry Team, and the Trading Post.

You might already be at our south campus that day if you were planning to attend the 10am worship service, help with the Heart to Heart food drive, or attend the Community Justice Walk. If that is the case, please consider helping between events, coming prior to the event or staying afterward. If you’re able to help any time that day, would you please let us know on this sign up genius? It is separate from the regular Heart to Heart sign up as it involves several missions and several timeslots for non-traditional work!

We really need some help with heavy lifting, transportation of items for donation elsewhere, re-shelving items, cleaning, etc. It’s a great way for students to get service hours in as we will be working on the weekend. However, I will need signed waivers for any minors participating without their parents. The timing of which things happen at which times will depend entirely on who is available and when. But I promise if you show up that day, I will put you to work doing anything from scrubbing sticker residue off windows to carrying heavy shelves between buildings, depending on your capacity!
