2011 Chocolate and Christian Caring a Success

On Sunday, February 13th our church family donated more than 25 dozen chocolate items, both full sugar and sugar free.  As a an outreach to our members (young and old alike) at Sunday School on this day we packed trays for the older classes to enjoy. The preschool thru 6th graders had a Valentine’s “God Loves You” party  planned and we supplied the sweets for their party as well.

Finally, we packed 14 individual goodie boxes for our homebound members to enjoy. Samples are below.

A special thanks to those who helped pack boxes, organize the items, purchase, or bake the items.  They include:  Kathy Fissel, Joyce Binkley, Pam Sanders, Mim Rebert, Peggy Matthews, Clarissa Pirich, Susan Wyckoff, Brenda Tate, Kim Blocher, Sue Leedy, Don Baer, Betty Frank, Betsy Beach, Kim Johnson, Shirley Cashman, Jane Stoner.

In addition, a special thanks to the visitation team for the countless hours visiting with our homebound members.  The following people helped deliver the goodie boxes to our homebound members.  Ken and Liz Baltzley, Kim Blocher, Linda and Tom Ritter, Joyce Binkley, Betsy Beach, Jane Grim, Shirley and Bob Cashman.

Due to the success of this outreach, we will be making this an annual event.
