Hat and Glove Collection

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED
For our Christmas service project, the Faith Community Nurses of Anderson will be once again collecting winter hats and gloves for our neighbors at South Main Chapel and Mercy Center. This church serves many of the homeless population of Anderson. These items will be distributed by the Faith Community Nurses at South Main to their clients this winter. If you would like to help, please place gloves and hats in the box in the Narthex labeled “FCN Glove and Hat donations”. Thank you, Amy Goodson
