Episcopal Farmworker’s Ministry: backpack and school supplies
The Episcopal Farmworker’s Ministry, located in Newton Grove, NC, is asking the extended community of Central and Eastern NC to purchase backpacks and school supplies for the children of seasonal farmworkers. The attached Signup Genius gives details about what should be purchased. If you want, partner with another family to purchase the backpack and the suggested supplies. Or, purchase as much as you are willing to purchase, given your budget and your interest.
Last year we donated 50 backpacks and supplies. This year, we are targeting 100, with 50 already purchased…most with supplies, but not all. We will finish those up in the coming weeks.
We will collect the donations before and after church on the three Sundays of July 11, 18, 25. Bless you all!

Your Gifts at Work
In this week’s Hope for the Journey, Fr. Javier shares about how your contributions make an impact in Cary and beyond: “We cannot help everybody, but we help whom we can, when we can—not just those who fit the mold and look the part of what we would define as ‘deserving’. The works of mercy are just that: mercy. Unearned gifts for those in need, not because they deserve help, but because we are called to serve.”Continue reading
