         "Blessings For You" Giveaway 
There are many needy families in our community that can't afford even basic needs -things that many of us have an abundance of. Caring Hearts is asking all congregation members to consider donating new or gently used, clean and freshly laundered, coats, hats, gloves or any other clothing for men, women, or children. Other things collected will be useful household items, cooking utensils, tableware, bedding and linens. All the collected items will be available free of charge to those less fortunate. Collecting will begin Saturday, October 14, and will continue until Sunday, November 5. These items can be dropped off in the church kitchen or put on the stage in the school gym. If you have many items to donate and would like them picked up, call Mary Schroeder at 507-724-5453 and she will arrange to have them picked up. 
The "Blessings For You" Giveaway will be held on Saturday, November 11, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Houston County Social Services are notifying eligible families. Area pastors will also be submitting names of families in their congregations that could use a little help.
If you know of a family that could benefit from this giveaway, please contact Mary. If anyone would be available to help sort these donations, please come to St. John's gym on Friday, November 10 at 1 p.m. Your help would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity to this program. God bless you!
