The collection to purchase animals to help a family or community in a struggling country was so well-received last year, Outreach will be doing the same collection this year. Each Sunday, starting with Mother’s Day and ending on Father’s Day, cow, elephant, and piggy banks will be on the picnic table in front of the Church (or in case of rain, in the Great Hall). We are asking for donations of your extra pocket change (cash accepted, too) to fill the banks. Last year we purchased a cow, a water buffalo, and chickens, geese, and ducks. Our thought for this campaign is to purchase another cow, a goat or donkey (or maybe both), and more poultry. We will make the purchases through Episcopal Relief and Development and Heifer International.
