VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FROM ST. PAUL UCC FOR COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Since Covid, the most vulnerable have suffered the most. St. Vincent DePaul in East St. Louis has been using their van to transport our most needy and homeless in Belleville to their facility.
Good News! Our Belleville Salvation Army has opened their Sanctuary for respite on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10-12 for lunch at noon. This is where we need volunteers to sit in the sanctuary to help visit, play games, read magazines and make them feel comfortable and welcome. Please be a part of St. Paul's mission of the community. If interested or have questions please call me. I am going to volunteer one day a month. It is just 2 hours of your time that can make a difference. Contact Sandy Ritter at 222-1123 for more information.
Another mission opportunity is the Suds of Love sponsored by the city. The city pays the west end laundromat for the homeless to do their laundry every 4th Wednesday. If you would like to donate to this cause please make donation to the church marked Suds of Love and we will make sure it gets sent to the agency.
Again thank you for making a difference in our community.
