The Ocean Cluster of Churches, comprising St. Paul's Berlin, St. Paul's by-the-Sea and Church of the Holy Spirit, have two plans for the Hope4Recovery House for the Advent and Christmas seasons.
In Advent, we are planning our annual paper goods drive for the House. Welcome items include things that cannot be purchased with food stamps, such as paper towels, toilet paper, paper napkins, good quality paper plates, laundry detergent, dish soap, both for sink and dishwasher, etc. You can bring the items to church; we will collect them on Dec. 4 to deliver before Christmas.
The other project is the annual Christmas boxes, which turned into Christmas bags, due to the generosity of the churches. We are planning to fill them with socks, hats, gloves, scarves, T-shirts (large and extra-large) and, of course, candy. Please, no liquid or gel toiletries. And we plan to deliver these on Dec. 19, so items should be at the churches by Dec. 18. We are going to fill 15 bags.
New and unwrapped toys are being collected for underprivileged children. Donations can be placed in the large white box located in the narthex of the church. Thank you! Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
