Village of Hope Haiti
Our Medical Team who traveled to Haiti in February brought back the disturbing news that infants and mothers were starving from lack of nutritious food. The Village of Hope Health Center offers a Nutrition Program which can save these infants and moms. However, the program is extremely underfunded. Our Pastors and Medical Team members appealed to us, the congregation and friends of HSLC, to help alleviate this problem with our financial support. And, you came to the rescue with an overwhelming response. By combining our Lenten offering with your individual donations, to date, we have raised $22,612.00. This is amazing!!! Countless additional lives will be saved by the expansion of the Nutrition Program. Your love, care, and generosity have enabled this to happen. Thank you and thanks be to God!

Care Ministry Needs
GAS CARD DONATIONS: The Food Pantry has a cargo van that picks up donations from generous donors almost daily. Gas cards are needed to keep the van running. You may send cards to Harry Drier, 5380 N. Ocean Dr. Apt. 6D, Singer Island, FL 33404.
FOOD PANTRY RECOVERY: Despite the fire at the Food Pantry, we have still been distributing food to an average of 80 families each week. Items needed are peanut butter, jelly, pasta, pasta sauce, cereals, and dry beans. Other items needed are: Community_Food_Pantry_Needs.pdf.
HOMELESS MINISTRY: Items needed for the Homeless at St. Ann: shoes, belts, hats, cloth shopping bags, men’s jeans/pants (sizes 28-38) and ladies pants. Small size toiletries, band aids, sunscreen, bug spray and vitamins are needed. Please place in the patio storage room. We need laptops or iPads for families in transition from homelessness. If you have one to donate, please contact Harry Drier at 561-601-8211.
DIAPER DRIVE FOR HOMELESS MOTHERS: Children’s Home Society cares for young homeless mothers and their infants. CHS provides a 2 year program that teaches these young moms how to care responsibly for their baby, educates them and finds them work. HSLC can be supportive by providing diapers. Please bring them to church. Evelyn Lyerly is the leader of the diaper drive.
GLASSES FOR HAITI: We will continue to collect reading glasses and non-prescription sunglasses to be sent to the Village of Hope in Haiti. We will have a shipment going in early 2019. Please continue to donate and thank you for your support.
SANDWICHES FOR THE NEEDY: Hard boiled eggs and sandwiches are needed each week for the hungry. Please bring individually wrapped sandwiches with no condiments and boiled eggs in a container and leave in the church kitchen refrigerator by 9:00 AM on Wednesday mornings.
