Blankets are being made for children in foster care. The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it. This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month (next date tbd) ) from 6-8 at the church. If you would like to donate, you can pick up the fleece no-sew blankets at JoAnn Fabrics and save them in the coat room, and our members will work on them. Join the Blanket Angels Facebook page for up- dates (needs, bad weather cancellations, etc.). Thank you for your continued support)..
Thanks to the past and current generosity of ALC members, the church council has been able to
make charitable gifts the past 2 months to local community organizations. In March, it gave $550
to FeedMore WNY (what used to Meals on Wheels and the WNY Food Pantry). In April, it
gave $300 to Kevin Guest House. As the months move on, council will be asking for your help
identifying other organizations locally to receive gifts. Stay tuned
Did you know Amherst is still working to provide a meal each month to Kevin Guest House? While as of right now we cannot provide a meal in person, we have been having prepared meals delivered each month. Continuing to commit to this ministry will take your support. So consider giving a special gift to this ministry during the month of April. Donations can be mailed to church with Kevin Guest House written on the memo line or they can be made online through Tithely.
Don’t forget, if you are a member of Thrivent Financial you may have choice dollars you can direct to a local or national organization. Amherst is included among this list of organizations, so consider directing your choice dollars here as we continue to work to share the good news of God with friends and neighbors! Visit the Thrivent website or give them a call with any questions or for help!
