PUMC WEEKLY FOOD DONATIONS
The latest donation drop was made this week to the Peterborough Food Pantry. There were twenty bags of groceries dropped! That is a phenomenal amount of food for the pantry shelves! Thanks so much, everyone! The need is great and we are surely doing our part along with so many others in our community! Our next donation will be going to the Greenfield Food Pantry … let’s concentrate on items to build the holiday pantry – ingredients for holiday dinners, warm wintertime meals, baking goods for family celebrations, etc. Hopefully, we can do a delivery by mid-December so that food that must be quarantined for a week can still get out to homes by the week of Christmas.
POINSETTIAS ORDER – DUE EARLY (NOW)
Each year our altar is decorated with poinsettias bought by members of our congregation in honor of or in memory of loved ones. This year is very different as we are not able to celebrate the season and worship together. The worship committee would like to keep the tradition going even though we can’t be together or adorn our altar we can continue to support our local businesses.
Unfortunately COVID has impacted the flower growers so we need to order early. We are going to order from Coll’s and they would like a count by next Monday, November 16.
The cost will be:
4” pot- $6.99 red or white
6 1/2” pot- $10.99 red only
7 1/2” pot- $17.99 red or white
Please provide a.) the number of plants you would like, b.) color and c.) pot size.
Checks should be made to Coll’s. They will be due prior to delivery. I will send out a notice once our order has been confirmed.
We will have the plants delivered to the church for pick up. Delivery will be the 12/21 or 12/ 22.
Please contact Amy Clason-Gilmet and leave your order information.
