When an abused woman comes into our local safe house, probably carrying nothing but her purse, she is given a SAVE ditty bag. Maybe it will be the one you filled for her. It will help her begin her journey to safety and wellness. It will contain shampoo and conditioner, a hairbrush, a fluffy sponge or washcloth, soap, deodorant, a tooth brush and toothpaste, and other small items.
Now is the time to create these bags. You will find the list of items and a colorful bag (made by people in our church) on the table in the fellowship hall. They will be dedicated, along with this month’s special offering for SAVE (Safe Alternatives for Violent Environments) on February 10.
As with all our special offerings, you are welcome to give at any time (always make checks payable to Niles Discovery Church). You can also give online: go to our church webpage and click the “donate” button at the top of the page.
Niles Discovery Church receives a special offering each month. With that many possibilities for special giving, you may need to choose which ones are most important to you. You can see the schedule of special offerings at bit.ly/specofferings or call the church office we will mail you one.
We apologize that we don’t have a count for your January Special Offering generosity for Tri-City Volunteers by the press deadline.
