Thank you for participating in the Love Your Neighbor Drive. You embraced Pastor Nate’s call to show generosity to our community. You donated over 250 linen items and $9,165 for the Sunday Breakfast Mission to purchase additional linens! Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to our community!
Our April 19 sermon focused on neighboring and how we can be a neighbor to those in our community, not just the people who live on either side of us. During the time of shelter in place due to COVID-19, it could be difficult to be a good neighbor while following the safety guidelines.
The Sunday Breakfast Mission in Wilmington had an urgent need for linens. One of Mission’s residents who works in the laundry room pointed out to Bruce Davison, Church & Community Relations Manager for Sunday Breakfast Mission, that the towel bin used to be much fuller. He also showed how the blankets are thinning and how much lint was being pulled from the dryers after a load of blankets demonstrating the beating they were taking due to the extra laundering in efforts to keep people safe.
We decided to partner with the Sunday Breakfast Mission to see if we could help meet this need. The Love Your Neighbor Drive ran from April 19 to May 15, 2020.
“These seemingly simple items will go a long way in providing a little comfort to the men and women who come for help,” said Bruce Davison. “More importantly, these items become tools in the effort to share the Gospel. Thank you so much for your generosity and willingness to serve.”
