Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to participate in the Senior Giving Tree Project.this year. You made a world of difference to our Seniors. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Our guests continue to enjoy a warm meal three nights a week at the Dwelling Place in Woburn. The much needed new chairs are greatly appreciated. Thanks to Rachel Circle for serving in December.......and to Miriam-Esther who is scheduled for January.
In December our guests were given a Christmas bag which included among other things a warm hat, gloves, and scarf.
Another Awesome Tree Season
I'm still in awe. . . 514 Christmas Trees "GONE" in 3 weekends. On behalf of your Outreach Committee, we would like to extend our "thanks" to ALL who made this19th year on the lawn such a success. So. . . thank you for spending time with our visitors, your smiles and Merry Christmas wishes, handing out candy canes to those of all ages, stoking the fire, aiding with fresh cuts and loading trees atop vehicles of all sizes. As of this writing, we don't yet have final figures, but do suspect it was an-other blessed year.

Gently Used Winter Coats
Living in New England this is a very necessary item of clothing; can't imagine not having a warm coat these blustery days! This winter season both The Wish Project and The Mission of Deeds are asking for donations of gently used winter coats for all family members; men, women, teens, children and toddlers. Hats and mittens would simply be a PLUS! The "drop off" box is located in the downstairs foyer near the coat closet and it will remain there until March 4th. Thank you for your support!
Habitat For Humanity Franklin Street Park Project
Well, the lot in Lowell has been cleared! In the Spring, we will be ready to begin working outside. HOWEVER, while we wait for spring-like weather, there is an opportunity to begin building" community garden boxes" inside at the Habitat Restore in Tyngsboro. Supplies and instruction will be available. Please see the sign-up sheet posted on the Outreach bulletin board located in the Narthex if this is a project that might spark your interest. We are hoping that we will have enough folks to form a small "team" and carpool to Tyngsboro a few Saturday's in January/February. What a wonderful opportunity for adults and teens to lend a helping hand to others! If you wish more information, please see Betsy Peterson, Outreach Committee co-chair.
