The Spencerport UCC’s Board of Christian Education announces a unique PENNY JAR charity for the month of June!
We will be filling DRAWSTRING BACKPACKS with personal hygiene items and stationary items for the residents at the COLDWATER HOUSE FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN
Drawstring backpacks are available. Please call Jessilou (585) 397-8766 if you’d like to fill a backpack for either an adult or child or both! A new clean backpack will be delivered to your home. Refer to the list below for requested items. Once the backpack is filled, call Jessilou again and your backpack will be picked up. They will be delivered to Coldwater and distributed to the residents. Thank you for your thoughtful generosity.
*Please note - We are NOT asking you to purposefully go out shopping during the pause for this project, but if you DO go out for groceries or other necessities, please consider picking up a few additional items for your backpack to help our neighbors in need. Monetary donations are also accepted. Please make checks payable to First Congregational Church and note “Penny Jar” in the memo field.
