Opportunity to Support Haiti
The recent hurricane season has left the people of Haiti devastated. Tens of thousands have been left dead or homeless and without a way to provide for their families. In addition to support through prayer, churches who want to do more can collect money, non-perishable food, summer clothing, heath kits and school kits. The Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Material Resource Center of Harleysville has agreed to serve as a collection point for these items and will prepare them for shipment. Items should be marked for Grace Assembly Network and delivered to the MCC warehouse at 461C Indian Creek Road, Harleysville, PA. For more information, visit haiti.franconiaconference.org.
