Christmas Outreach Report

Becky Miller Pryor thanks the congregation for their support of the Social Ministry projects that occurred in December.


Selinsgrove State Center PhotoOn December 15, 2014 the Elves of St. Mark’s traveled to the Selinsgrove Center to once again share stories, songs and gifts with the seventeen ladies of CM-6 and their caregivers. The bottles of body wash and cups of pudding that were donated were part of a gift pack each lady received. The caregivers received dozens of homemade cookies, candy and a holiday floral arrangement created by Pastor.

It was a very special evening for the ladies and our elves.

A special thank you goes to Cheryl Williams for providing the many homemade cookies the caregivers received. And finally thank you to the congregation for their donations of body wash, pudding and money to fill in with the gifting. We were blessed to receive more from the ladies and their caregivers than we gave.

DanvilleStateHospThe residents of Danville State Hospital received more than 31 articles of new clothing, 8 pairs of socks, 2 packages of socks, 5 packages of undies, 2 pairs of gloves, 3 watches, 6 activity books and 2 wallets. Our donated items were designated as general gifts that were used where they were most needed.

A member of Redeemer Lutheran Church graciously agreed to deliver our donations to the hospital with those of Redeemer Lutheran Church. That was a blessing to me as the coordinator of this project.

These gestures of Christmas spirit given by our congregation were sure to comfort the individuals receiving them in Christ’s name.
