This year the Presbyterian Women supported the children of Second Mile Center in Detroit. We had 30 names on the tree in the Narthex and folks pulled off names of needy children so they could shop for them. The children has asked for school clothes and one gift item for Christmas. On Sunday, December 11th, we checked the bags to make sure all items were accounted for. Then we packaged up 30 Christmas bags containing shirts, pants, toys, mittens, scarves and socks. All bags were accounted for that week and Waunita Flint, Joyce Mcfarlane and Judy Webb delivered the items to SMCe all wrapped up in Christmas bags and bright red plastic sacks.
Many thanks to our Congregation for once again making Christmas bright for needy children. The center and the children were thrilled to receive these special gifts of love!
Happy New Year!
