‘Tis the season to be giving to those who are struggling in so many ways! In light of the needs in our wider community, the Community Baptist Church of Marion is hosting a community ingathering on Saturday, December 8 from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. The following items have been identified as greatly needed. You can bring these items to the church that day and we will forward them to the various agencies that are in need.
We will be collecting the following items:
• Canned goods for the food pantry at Church of the Good Shepherd in Wareham. The food pantry and Church of the Good Shepherd provide a vital link for many people in our community who are food insecure.
• Boots, sneakers and socks for the Mobile Loaves and Fishes in New Bedford. The Mobile Loaves and Fishes, run by St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of New Bedford, provides meals to the homeless via their mobile kitchen. During this ministry, they have found many of the homeless are in need of socks, boots and sneakers for the winter months. Bring your gently used or new boots, sneakers and socks to our ingathering.
• Baby diapers and baby wipes for Baby Point of Wareham. For young mothers, baby diapers and wipes are not covered by any type of assistance, so Baby Point strives to provide these items to young mothers.
Community Baptist will also be hosting a bake sale that morning and will have loads of home baked goods available for purchase. For further information, please contact Rev. Diane L. Badger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-369-6291.
Our church is located at 441 Front Street (at the junction of routes 195 and 105) in Marion. The coffee pot will be on and donuts will be fresh! So stop by anytime between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
