St. Peter's Outreach Giving Generously
Given the severity of the pandemic, the Outreach Committee has had to curtail some of our work but we are still managing to be a positive presence in our community. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to give a total of $2000.00 to the Casa Grande Food Pantry and $500.00 to the Navajo Nation since March. The gift for the Navajo Nation was sent to the Diocese of Arizona. The Diocese is pooling donations and working on a water plan for the Navajo.
St. Peter's has become more active with Laundry Love. At this point, four churches are pooling funds and laundry soap to be able to provide this service twice a month. So far St. Peter's has been able to provide hygiene kits each time Laundry Love is offered. We recently received a welcome donation of washable face masks, hand sanitizer, lip balm and sunscreen from CAHRA (Community Action Housing Resource Agency) to add to the hygiene kits.
Anyone interested in assisting with this valuable ministry can donate to St. Peter's Outreach. At this time toothbrushes, toothpaste and deodorant are most in need.
