DEACONS HYGIENE ITEMS DRIVE
The Deacons are collecting hygiene items for Mary's Place, a facility providing care for the homeless. Seattle has the fourth largest homeless population in the nation which puts a heavy load on all caring organizations. Travel size shampoos, soaps, razors, lotions, toothpaste and other hygiene items are preferred. Items can be left in a box in the Narthex. On Palm Sunday the youth will man a table where you can purchase travel sizes to donate to Mary's Place.
