Donations box for the needy

posted 1 Aug 2013, 05:38 by St. Thomas' Church Aboyne   [ updated 1 Aug 2013, 05:38 ]

As a Church, I think we could do some out-reach in the Community. So we now have a Box in the Church for the collection of donations of food and toys for needy people in the area, including families and elderly people. 

Nearer Christmas our donations will be taken down to the Social Work Department in Aboyne. This, with any others from elsewhere, will go to Banchory, where a Social Worker who is in charge of this will sort out everything and deliver to those who are thought to need help. 

Therefore, will members of St Thomas’ congregation please help us to send a worthwhile donation. Packets, tins and bottles are welcome, mainly the basics are needed, nothing too unusual. 

Any toys in good condition would also be welcome.
