Christmas at Sea Knitting and Gift Collection
We will be collecting items through October 28th for the mariners who come through Port Elizabeth around Christmas. The following items are welcome gifts to be added to the individual bags given to each mariner. Toiletries, lip balm, facial tissues, microwave popcorn, chewing gum, new playing cards Sudoku or word search books. Handmade Christmas cards are a very special addition. There will be a box in the Narthex for all items. If you like to knit or crochet, consider making a scarf or cap to keep away the cold winds at sea. Please check https://seamenschurch.org/christmas-at-sea for suggestions/patterns or talk to June Flipski. Prefer to sew? Simple cloth ditty bags are also needed to hold each mariner’s items. Directions by collection box, as these must all be the same.
