Our Socks & Stuff for the Soul campaign started September 2020 with a goal of 1,750 pairs of socks to be donated to the homeless thru Connections for the Homeless to honor our 175th Anniversary in 2021. As the need grew so did the giving. We surpassed that amount beyond anything we could have imagined, with donations of socks, hats, mittens, underwear, clothing, and personal need items.

Our current tally is 6,027 items.

Thank you to all who gave.

This year we are saving for an ARK.

Help us achieve our goal.

When someone asked us, "What is the best part of serving?" the answer was:


"The camaraderie of coming together to accomplish the goal and helping others."


"We use our Gifts for God when we serve others."
