FEBRUARY MONTHLY MISSION
~ O2/08/14 ~
SATURDAY ~ 10AM UNTIL NOON
@ 1ST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH GYM
307 FLINT AVE ~ ACROSS FROM MISSION CHANGE OFFICE
Ever wondered how to change the world from your backyard? Well, here's a chance for you, your family, your friends, and any group of whoever's that you hang with to join in on some Valentine Love! What better way to say "we're thinking of you!" than to make a hoagie sandwich, add some greek pasta, fruit, and a little dessert with some words of love to our senior citizens of downtown Albany, Ga?
That's right! We need you to come and make sandwiches, give a scoop of pasta love, throw in some fruit, and share desserts and kind words with our neighbors who live in Hudson Malone Towers, Golden Age Housing, and any neighbors who live in their own homes right down the street. They will love your company, and the fact that you have called them friend.
We ask volunteers to be at the FUMC gym (on the corner of Jefferson St. & Flint Ave.) at 10am to help prepare the TO-GO meals, make a few cards of love, and hopefully a small flower arrangement to take to our shut-ins and neighbors who live in other housing situations that may keep them from being able to share in fellowship.This is a great monthly mission for all ages! Have your little ones make Valentine's cards to share and bring them the day of the mission.
Please email La Donna for any questions regarding donations of items or places to take meals to -
