Easter Basket Time

Easter basketHave you seen the candy, bunnies, and chicks on sale in the stores? It’s Easter Basket time again.
One of our local missions projects each year is to give a small basket of goodies to each child in MATS (Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter) in Peterborough and SFTS (Shelter From the Storm) in Jaffrey. We also send candy and plastic eggs to New Life Home in Manchester so that the moms there can put together baskets for their children. New Life Home is a faith-based organization that serves women with substance abuse problems and their children.
The Covid pandemic and the related economic problems have affected all of us, but those without extra financial resources have surely been hit the hardest. By giving these Easter Baskets to the children, we are trying to send this message – our church sees and acknowledges your struggle and your determination to succeed and we want to help take a small part of the burden – we love you and your children as God loves you.
Please join us in this project by dropping bags of candy in the food box at the end of the parking lot entrance or writing a check to PUMC with ‘Easter baskets’ in the memo line. We have approximately 25 baskets to fill!
Contributions should be at the church by Palm Sunday, March 28.
Thank you so much!
From the Missions Committee
