Pray & Pay it Forward with Love:
St. Stephen’s Stewardship Campaign 2017
This year, our Stewardship Season offers THREE opportunities for you to Pray & Pay it Forward!
1) Pledge cards will be available in church on October 21st & 22nd. When you support your church, you support so much more!
2) We will be taking donations of items for the Texas Diaper Bank, who are assisting those in shelters.
3) You may make a one-time donation to assist St. Stephen’s, Houston, by writing a check and putting “Houston” on the Memo line. That money will go directly to the rector of the parish, and will assist families in desperate need.
Help Us Help the Texas Diaper Bank!
Bring donations to church between now and Nov. 19th!
We are assembling “Hygiene Kits” that they distribute. You can donate individual items from the following lists, or even assemble kits on your own and bring them in. Thank you in advance for this help, for those who lost everything to Hurricane Harvey.
Baby Hygiene Kits – Baby wash, baby shampoo, baby lotion, wash cloth, diaper rash cream, bottle, burp cloth, bib, pacifier, etc.
Toddler Hygiene Kits – Baby wash, baby shampoo, baby lotion, wash cloth, diaper rash cream, sippy cup, burp cloth, bib, pacifier, etc.
Adult Hygiene Kits – Shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste etc.
Notes & Postcards
People can also write notes of Hope and Strength to folks who will be coming to the shelters supported by the Diaper Bank. People can write loving, supportive notes at home, plus we will have opportunities here for folks to write notes that will get sent with our donations.
Local postcards are great for these brief notes. They won’t need an address on them, so people could write all over the back… and it shares a bit of the Berkshires with those folks in the deep south.
They ask that if you wish to donate diapers, please focus on the larger sizes for children and also for adults. Disposable diapers in sizes 4, 5, and 6, and toddler “pull-ups” and the largest sizes (L and XL) of “Depends” or similar products. New, unopened packages, please.
