WINTER COAT AND BOOT DRIVE
We are collecting new or good conditioned Winter coats and Winter Boots for those in need through the winter months. Donations of coats and boots ONLY can be dropped off in the appropriate bins at the parking lot entrance. Please speak to Anne Washington for more information.
Thank you to everyone who has donated items for our PHONE AUCTION which will be held on December 5th 2020 1pm-4pm.
This is how it works:
· Everyone will receive a ‘catalogue’ via email, of items for auction with a number to call to place a bid.
· On the day, call to bid between the hours of 1-4pm.
· If you are outbid we’ll call you back to see if you want to increase your bid.
· At 4pm the winners will be decided and we’ll arrange to either drop your item off or to have you collect it from the church.
This is how you can help:
· SHARE the catalogue widely with friends, family and neighbours, especially via email.
Please note that if the item you donated does not appear in this auction it may be because we are saving it for our second, or it has been selected for tea and treasures, or we are trying to sell it through more expert channels.
A NOTE FROM DUNDAS VALLEY ROTARY CLUB
The Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club is working on the provision of two things for those in need during the month of December - sox and “skivvies”! There will be deposit boxes around Dundas for ONE WEEK only - November 23 - 30th. We need your donation of sox and underwear (new!) for males, females and children. Please contact Robert Morrow for any assistance in this project.

PRAYER OF THE WEEK
God of humanity, who walked among us and touched our lives,
We pray for the great network of human kind, in all the corners of the earth:
For justice to be done; those living in fear to be liberated;
Those suffering to find comfort; those sick to find healing;
Those in conflict to find peace.
