Thanks to all who have donated trial sized toiletries, cosmetics and greeting cards. Your generous donations were delivered this week to Penates Women’s Shelter, an organization which provides shelter and support services for homeless women in Suffolk County. Since the beginning of the year, we have collected 109 bottles of shampoo, 85 bars of soap, 75 bottles of conditioner, 77 bottles of lotion, 73 toothbrushes as well as toothpaste & dental floss, assorted gels, lipsticks and personal care items. In addition, thanks to the Prayer Shawl group who donated their beautifully hand made shawls to the 17 resident of Penates just in time for Easter with a personal tag sewn into each “Made with Prayer & Love, Christ Lutheran Church”. Please continue to drop your new trial sized donations in the labeled bins in the Narthex.
