Outreach – May 2023

During May, the Outreach committee helps the Food Bank of Somerset County on select Saturday morning by giving food to those who need it.

The dates for May are the 7th and the 21st. We need volunteers!

You would need to arrive at the food bank (which is in the parish hall of the Reformed Church on Main St in Somerville) by 8 am.

 A sign-up sheet will be placed in the Narthex. We will also be helping out on select Saturdays in August; so please keep that in mind.

Outreach October 2022

Outreach is changing direction a bit this month and we are going to try to help our furry friends. 

We will be collecting pet food for the food pantry and needed items for the local animal shelter. A detailed list is posted on the bulletin board in the back of the church but a brief list includes: Limited slip dog collars; Martingale cat beds; cat toys (furry mice); squeaky dog toys; KMR (Kitten Milk Replacer); paper towels; paper plates & bowls; antibacterial hand soap; and Clorox bleach. All types of cat and dog food are welcome. Thank you.
