DONATIONS & VOLUNTEER WORK FOR THE LAWRENCEVILLE COOP

lawrenceville coop pic july newsletter

Thank you to all that attended our “Keeping Up With The Co-Op” meeting last week. We had representatives from 18 local churches. We discussed what has happened since the last meeting, what is coming and ways to strengthen our relationship even more.

 

We challenged everyone to ask their members to donate $1/member per month and 1 can/member per week. If this happened, we would be in great shape to help our shared community with their needs. Would love to see this promoted within your churches.

A few more highlights: 1) Please let us know when you have scheduled Food Drives; 2) We plan to send out a Wish List soon that we would love to have distributed to your membership; 3) Building Fund Donations needed that are over and above your regular giving.

Bingo Night has been postponed until January 9th. Hope to see everyone at Newk’s (Lawrenceville Suwanee Rd. location) this Thursday from 5-9pm
