2023 Good Friday Day of Service
WE CELEBRATED GOOD FRIDAY BY HELPING THOSE IN NEED IN OUR COMMUNITY
Good Friday 2023 Update:
Thank you to all that helped us to make our CHS Good Friday Day of Service a memorable one. We had over 85 volunteers turn out for this special day. We completed work at 13 houses as part of the Mr. Fixit project of Hunterdon County. We helped Good News Home for Women clean out storage areas on their property. Meals on Wheels gratefully distributed the 90 wreaths that we made for their clients. We helped the Sunday School finish the 8 blankets that were made for the Linus Project. The Flemington Food Bank received about 90 personal hygiene kits for their clients, along with handmade notes created by folks at CHS that day. The Clinton Food Pantry received 440 lbs of food and cleaning supplies collected during the few weeks leading up to Good Friday. Several caps were knitted and crocheted for the Seaman’s Institute’s Christmas at Sea program. Several projects were completed around CHS including, outside pruning, Altar Guild room cleanup, electrical rewiring, and Parish Hall renovation work. Our newly formed Publicity group sent out information to several publications and we had a few new folks join us that day due to this outreach.
A special thank you to those parishioners who spearheaded the projects and those that organized and contributed food for breakfast and dinner that day.
Here is the letter that went to the Open Cupboard Food Pantry with the 440 pounds of donations!
