Deacons Tonawanda School Mission Project
The Deacons are continuing to partner with the the Tonawanda Elementary Schools to provide much needed clothing items to needy children. This is an ongoing mission project and the Deacons would like to thank the people who have donated so generously. The schools have expressed an urgent need for underwear in the
following sizes: Boys and Girls underwear size 6 and size 8 at one school and Boys underwear sizes 6-8,
10-12, and 14-16 at a second school. Either a monetary donation or clothing donation is acceptable. See Jane Crossan or Leslie Dugan for more details on how you can donate and what items are needed. There is also a designated tote in the Narthex to place your donations.
Don't forget that the third Sunday of the month is Hunger Sunday. Food and cash donations are welcome
and proceeds are donated to the Twin Cities Community Outreach. There is a list posted in the Narthex
of the items that the food pantry is in need of most; please check the list. There is a drop box is in the Narthex. Thank you for your continued support.

attend YOUR doctor appointments, go to lunch with a friend or just relax? First Presbyterian Church will begin our Memory Lane Respite Program on the third Tuesday of each month, next one to be determined soon
at the church at 149 Broad Street, City of Tonawanda. Trained volunteers will provide supervised fun activities, crafts, music/singing for your loved one - all at NO CHARGE. A nutritious hot lunch will also be served. All are welcome at the Memory Lane Respite Program. Please contact our church at (716)692-1319 for more information or to sign up.

Memory Lane Respite Program: Volunteers Needed (Not Meeting)
Our church offers a respite program for family caregivers of people with memory impairment (dementia, Alzheimer's) to get a much needed break. Our program runs once a month, (the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10:30am-2:30pm) and we are looking for dedicated volunteers to help out in various ways: 1 on 1 companion for guests, setup/cleanup, crafts, food preparation, food service, games, music, making phone calls, etc. You do not have to volunteer every month; we will have sign-up sheets ahead of time. More information is on the table in the Narthex and any questions can be directed to the team: Mike Donovan, Marilee Mathias, Janet Haacker, Judy Winters, and Pastor Leslie Latham. Why not consider helping out with this exciting ministry?
Service of Blessing and Healing: TBD
First Presbyterian Church will hold an evening service devoted to healing and wholeness. This is a "come as you are" service, open and welcoming to all who seek wholeness for their lives, Presbyterian or otherwise. Please join us in the sanctuary.
