Heifer Project 4/8-4/29

It's time for our Annual Heifer Project collection. In 2016, we collected $150. In 2017, we collected $750 and, with the match by Heifer, the dollar amount was doubled to $1500. What can we raise for 2018? The sky is the limit - a cow, a water buffalo, honeybees, a llama, a trio of rabbits, sheep, goats, a pig?? Think of the possibilities!!! Let's reach for the stars! I love the work that we do through Heifer. I  know you all do too. Pray on what you can afford to donate and may God's blessings be with you, now and always. Yours in Christ, Terri Leander. 

The Saugus Community Food Pantry

Most needed items are: canned soups, canned tuna, canned chicken, spam-type of meats, peanut butter, jelly, American cheese(sliced), 32-oz apple or orange juice, spaghetti sauce, pasta, shelf stable milk(boxed or canned, not refrigerated), mac & cheese, cereal. There is a drop-off location at the office of Century 21, 442 Lincoln Ave, too. If you can make a monetary donation, mail it c/o Cliftondale Congregational. Hungry people are counting on us! If you know anyone in need of food, please let them know about the pantry. If they don't have a way to get there, they can designate a person to pick up for them.
