Our Benevolent Giving in May is for Newtown Youth and Family Services. If you would like to make an additional donation please place it in an envelope appropriately marked and with your envelope number and put it in the offering plate. Thank You!
The annual Postal Carriers' Food Drive will be on Saturday, May 13th. A sign-up sheet has been posted on the bulletin board, asking for volunteers to "drive," "hop," or "sort." The "drivers" are given a postal carrier's route to follow. The "hoppers" hop out and grab any food donations left by a mailbox. They bring their findings back to Newtown Social Services, where the "sorters" arrange all of the donated food into categories, to be shipped both near and far. Homeowners are asked to leave a bag of non-perishable food items by their mailbox on the morning of the 13th. Volunteers then drive around to collect the food, before bringing it back to Newtown Social Services (below the police station), where it is sorted.
