Monthly Drives

Our next monthly donation drive during worship services is Sunday, July 14. We will be collecting skin care products, especially lotion and sunscreen. Look for our volunteers, Becky and Susan, outside worship spaces at all services.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Buddy)

Next month we launch our BYOB volunteer campaign! Bring a friend or family member to volunteer with you during your regular shift. Show them around the place and work side-by-side giving them training on the job!

Social Media

Make sure you are following the Heart to Heart on both Facebook and Instagram. Social media is one of the best ways for the world to share information! Every time you like or comment on one of our posts, it promotes engagement across the platform. When you share our posts, the information is immediately visible to those in your circle! It quickly helps spread our message- whether it be resource information, a plea for donations, or a volunteer opportunity. Sharing on social media is an easy way to support our mission. Check out these posts from the past week to see what you may have missed.
