Care Ministry Needs
HYGIENE KITS: Hygiene Kits are needed for clients of St. George Center. We are collecting TRAVEL-SIZED ITEMS: toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, dental floss, comb, shaving cream, razor, body wash/shampoo, lotion/sunscreen, deodorant. Additional items we like to include: wash cloth (neutral colors), socks, band-aids, wipes, gallon size Ziploc bags. You can also bring in already prepared Hygiene Kits with the above items inside a gallon bag. If you have any questions, please contact, Cara Rucker at email@example.com. Thank you so much!
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 AND CLOTHING PANTRY: Each week the Food Pantry distributes food to families in need in Lake Park. Due to the pandemic, we are reaching new highs in the number of families needing items. Click the link to see what the food items needed are: Community_Food_Pantry_Needs.pdf. While we have community partners, including Whole Foods, Publix, Seacoast Bank, and Palm Beach Harvest, we still need your help with donations. If you do not feel safe shopping, you can make a donation to the Care Ministry at HSLC and designate it for the Food & Clothing Pantry, or donate gift cards for food. We are in need of volunteers on Tuesdays from 8 to 11 am to safely distribute food. Contact Harry Drier for details at 561-601-8211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOMELESS MINISTRY: Items needed for the Homeless at St. Anne's and St. George's: rolling suitcases, 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. Inexpensive watches 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 is collecting diapers. We have also begun collecting baby clothes up to 24 months. If you knit or crochet, we are taking donations of baby booties and receiving blankets. Please bring them to church. Please contact Evelyn Lyerly with any questions at email@example.com or 561-308-1292.
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 Spring 2021. 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.
There are many volunteer opportunities within the Care Ministry. If you have time and a passion for giving back your time, please join the Care Ministry team of volunteers by contacting Harry Drier at 561-601-8211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
