Crisis Assistance Ministry here in Gastonia provides help for all kinds of people in need. They give truckloads of food away, and help people pay utility bills. They are also one of the few actual interfaith organizations in Gastonia, as Christian and Jewish communities are formal sponsors of the good things that they do. So it’s a no-brainer- Open Hearts Gathering is now an official “partner congregation”!
Each congregation is asked to collect food items for one month out of the year, and so we’ve picked this month, October, to do that. Please bring edible items to the next Gathering on the 16th, or arrange to get them to me at any other time. Contact me as needed. And thanks for your help!
