Volunteers Needed - DAMASCUS HELP
Damascus HELP had a table at Damascus Days but wasn’t able to sign up any volunteers. They are continuing to look for additional volunteers. Please consider volunteering or ask your friends and neighbors. Opportunities include ODs, food drivers, pantry pick up helpers, and volunteers to be part of a furniture delivery team. Furniture delivery teams with their own trucks are in great demand as well as transportation drivers. Another financial caseworker is needed to work with the clients and their utility bills. Special project volunteers are also needed. For all volunteer opportunities please contact Damascus HELP at 301-253-4100, or email firstname.lastname@example.org www.damascushelp.orgfor additional information.
Back Packs and School Supplies
We are now collecting backpacks and school supplies to go to area children in need. This is a partnership with other Damascus Congregations through Faith Connections. There is a blue bin in the Narthex where supplies can be dropped off.
New Neighbors Refugee Food Drive
St. Anne's partnered with Damascus Y-Women to collect food and household supplies for the Islamic Center of Maryland's food bank, which serves refugee families in our area. We collected enough for 8 families with leftovers to stock the food pantry! Thank you to everyone who donated!
