Outreach

"Thank You" to all who helped to "serve" at St. Paul's during these past summer months. Fundraising throughout the year gave us "purchase power" during these months allowing us to serve; pulled pork sandwiches, subs with a variety of garnishing's, sliced ham and all served with the summertime favorites of potato salad, cole slaw/tossed salad, chips and a variety of cold desserts (i.e., hoodsies, ice cream sandwiches, sundaes).

Thank You for your support.
"Thank You" to all who provided school supplies to complete 12 back packs plus numerous extras. In all, 48 back packs were delivered to The Wish Project in mid August – in plenty of time for distribution to K-12 children of low-income families residing in the Merrimack Valley area.

Thank You for making a difference in the lives of others.

St. Paul's Soup Kitchen – September 9th and September 24th
This month we will return to asking for your help in preparing a meal for our St. Paul's guests. Please see the sign-up sheet located on the Outreach bulletin board in the Narthex if you are able to lend a helping hand with meal preparation or serving.

5th Annual "Feast of St. Paul's" / September 28th / 6:00 p.m.
Mark your calendar!
Once again, your Outreach Committee will host a "smorgasbord" of dishes served and enjoyed by our St. Paul's guests. There will be something for everyone's taste buds; Shepherd's Pie, Chicken Broccoli and Ziti, Taco Bake, Pulled Pork, Mac ‘n Cheese, Tossed Salad, Beverage and a variety of desserts. The price – a free will donation. Funds raised will be used to help defray Outreach out-of-pocket food expenses during the year. Tickets are available at the church office or from Outreach Committee members. Although there is no set price, we need a ticket count to ensure that we have enough food on hand for all.
See you at 6:00 in Fellowship Hall on the 26th!

The Wish Project Yard Sale – September 21st / 9-2
On a personal note, I will once again be on the church lawn fundraising to benefit The Wish Project which
takes in donated goods and through social service agencies redistributes "basic" household goods to individuals/ families moving from shelters to apartments. Sale items have all been donated to Wish, but are not eligible for client distribution.

YOU are the most integral part of the day! Please visit us on the lawn and take-home a treasure or two or
three. There will be a variety of items available; decorative stemware and glassware, kitchen gadgets and
small appliances, linens, holiday decorations and much more.

Sales help are volunteers from The Wish Project and WUMC. If you can spare a few hours and would like to
join our sales team, please contact me, Betsy Peterson, at (978) 657 – 0355, email bpeter62@comcast.net or
see me after church. Rain Date – September 28th; same place, same time.
Questions, please just ask. See you on the lawn!
