hopgardens

From the Hope Center’s Facebook page:

Hope Gardens is nearing completion! We will get the keys on November 20 and will welcome our residents in early December! This means that 20 chronically homeless women will truly be “home for the holidays”! We have a number of wonderful volunteers who are collecting donations of household items to help make the women’s transition from the streets to home a welcoming and pleasant experience. If you would like to donate items or make a monetary donation, contact Karen Carman at 716-893-7222 x301. All donations are tax deductible. We are in need of non-perishable food items, alarm clocks, can openers, and small coffee pots.

Hope Gardens is located on Oberlin & Ruhland Avenues off Sycamore.

Holy Land Fair Trade Gifts @ Corpus Christi Church This Weekend

HolyLandgifts

This Sunday, Corpus Christi Church will host a Fair Trade Federation event.

Holy Land Gifts will display and sell handmade articles; such as nativity scenes, crucifix, rosary, last supper pictures and many other beautiful religious articles.

This will take place after all the Masses, October, 18th and 19th. Because of the conflict in that part of the world, many Christian families in Bethlehem are struggling to make ends meet.

Holy Land Gifts represents over 100 Christian families who make a living selling traditional olive wood handcrafts and religious articles.

When you purchase one of these beautiful gifts, you are helping artisans in the Holy Land provide for their families; to live and work with dignity in a region fraught with tension.
