Room at the Table teams have been updated. There is no need for a captain’s meeting at this time.
The Backpack Ministry have what they need to finish for 2018. The school system will take care of students in the summer at different school sites. 40% of the offering for the Mark Presentation will be designated to the Backpack Ministry.
Rise Against Hunger:
We had 95 participants for our Rise Against Hunger event and are grateful to the Fire Department and their help unloading and loading and for the planning committee.
There was a general feeling among committee members that we would like to partner with St. Paul’s with a future project, but may not do the Packaging of Meals in 2019.
18, 324 items were collected for the Shelter Home and Yokefellow. They are very appreciative.
Women’s Build – Episco-gals –
The first build day is May 12th. There are 5 members of the team who have already signed up. Also, on May 5th is a training day at Lenoir Builder’s Supply. Members sign up for the training day through the volunteer website. There will also be a gathering on May 8th at Lowe’s Hardware. Members are encouraged to attend and wear their shirts.
African Team Ministries (April 29, May 6th)
Susan shared with the committee a resource supported by the Episcopal Church that works as an intermediary between African and American churches, providing funding for orphan and refugee relief missions and evangelism in East Africa. They raise funds through a bazaar at church, selling jewelry and crafts made by people in the areas of Africa where they work. The items will be displayed in the Atrium on April 29th and May 6th. We will use the honor system, although CARE members may come and help where it is needed.
Next Meeting: Monday, July 30th, 10:00 am
