Dear Friends of the REST program,
Thank You CPC friends for all the items, food, and time you donate to REST ( Rotating Emergency Shelter Team). Our women really appreciate all that you do!
We have just finished our 14 Monday evening obligations with the REST women for the 2016-2017 year. Over 80 of our CPC members signed up and donated the food, fellowship, and fun for our group. Our Monday evenings partners, St. John’s, who have worked 5 evenings and FCC (First Congregation-al Church) who have worked 6 evenings will finish out the rest of the Monday evenings. This pro-gram only works with all our volunteer efforts. By the way, the women love all the little goodies that you donate all throughout the year.
As far as I know, there will not be a REST program this summer. Please keep the REST program in your prayers as housing and services are still needed. Marghie Goff and I attended a MOC ( Marin Or-ganizing Council) meeting this morning (4/25/17). Everyone is hoping to have a “Housing First” fo-cus in the future.
Thanks so much! Carlene Searway
Also, many thanks for all the goodies you donate (shampoo, lotion, toothpaste, etc.) Please put items in the donation basket in the Sanctuary or bring to the Church Office during office hours.
