SHOE BOXES FOR BLYTHSWOOD
These have to be at East Kilbride on Wednesday 4th November. Joan and I will be in carpark at Rorison on the morning of the 4th at 11.30 to receive donations. Anyone having problems with these arrangements should contact either of us and we will arrange to collect. If you cannot fill a shoe box and would like to make a monetary donation the Blythswood Office is making up boxes with monies received.
An alternative to the shoe box is a drawstring cloth bag measuring 40cm X 30cm.
The list of contents for a box or alternative such as family box or a box for the elderly can be found on the Church web site or from Kay Blair. If possible please include £3.00 donation towards transport of the gifts.
Christmas CANNOT be cancelled, as is being suggested by some media, as it is the celebration of the birth of our Lord. However it looks like it could be bleak compared to how we usually celebrate. Just think how much worse it could be if Blythswood has nothing to offer to those who have next to nothing. Remember Jesus said what we do for a stranger we do for Him.
